Dr. Leona Sevick, Bridgewater College provost and vice president of academic affairs, recently became the recipient of the 2017 Press 53 Award for Poetry.
Sevick won the award for her book of poetry called Lion Brothers after it was selected as
the winner from 315 entries across the nation. The award was presented
by Tom Lombardo, editor of the Press 53 poetry series. Lion Brothers is set to be published as A Tome Lombardo Poetry
Selection by Press 53 on the first of April.
“The poems in Lion
Brothers excited me with their high levels of emotion delivered in a
clear and compelling voice,” one judge said. “Using distinct diction and
figuration in a pleasing flow, the poet presents stories freshly, with
surprises, while maintaining strong connections between readers and the world.
This collection holds together nicely with its overarching narrative of the
dark corners of domestic life.”
Sevick has had her poetry published in The Journal, Barrow Street, Potomac Review, North American Review, The
Florida Review, Poet Lore -- as well as All
We Can Hold: Poems of Motherhood and in
Circe’s Lament: Anthology of Wild Women Poetry, both anthologies.
