Daphne Marlatt's statement for this year’s contest . . .
In his prose homage to “Great Companion: Dante Alighiere,” Robin Blaser writes: “out of the advent of language, one’s life in language – as if life were the home of it --.” This points to “one’s” experiential stake in the shared and public world of language. In this year's contest we are looking for poems at home in the interaction between one's individual life in language and the larger public world of language.
