FROM BORDIGHERA PRESS (NYC): We are excited to share news that Janet Sylvester’s manuscript And Not to Break, has been selected as the 2019 Lauria/Frasca Poetry Prize winner! Our distinguished judge, Peter Covino, described the collection as “really gorgeous and sophisticated, lots of moving imagery about a mother’s alcoholism and aging in general. Quite layered and ambitious too, with a strong range of forms and some affecting direct moments.”
