Poetry and nonfiction contest judges selected.
Passages North is delighted to announce the judges for our upcoming poetry and nonfiction contests. Aimee Nezhukumatathil will judge our 2013 Elinor Benedict Poetry Prize. Aimee -- whose collections include Lucky Fish, At the Drive-In Volcano, and Miracle Fruit -- was named by Rita Dove as a young poet to watch. Elena Passarello, actor, voice-over artist, and author of the collection of essays Let Me Clear My Throat, will judge our 2013 Thomas Hruskha Memorial Nonfiction Prize. Both contests will open for submissions in January.
