Here is a Clearing by Heather Hamilton
Winner of the 2018 Chapbook Fellowship
Selected and introduced by Aimee Nezhukumatathil
Here Is a Clearing is an electric-bright debut, unflinching in its attention to the natural world, but also to the not-of-this-world, the place above so charged, as in a plane, where “we stare forward, mouthing the script/ for jump order....” This chapbook does indeed thrive on collecting an ecology of “Earth's scatted deposition,” one that holds much earthly promise for Heather Hamilton, a poet of extraordinary and indispensable gifts.
Edition: 500 copies of the winning books were printed by the Prolific Group and designed by Gabriele Wilson, with covers by John Gall.
