We are delighted to announce this year’s winners of the The Laurence Goldstein Prize, The Page Davidson Clayton Prize For Emerging Poets, and  The Lawrence Prize, which are given annually to poets and fiction writers featured in Michigan Quarterly Review. This year’s prizes were judged

2015 Clayton Prize Awarded to Katie Hartsock

Katie Hartsock has won the 2015 Page Davidson Clayton Prize for Emerging Poets, which is awarded annually to the best poet appearing in MQR who has not yet published a book. The award, which is determined by the MQR editors, is in the amount of $500.

MQR Poetry Editor Keith Taylor writes about her poem “The Sister Karamazov,” which appeared in our Spring 2015 issue, “We were very impressed by this poet’s ability to enter one of the classics and to reimagine it, adding another emotional and metaphoric level to something that a lesser imagination might see as fixed and impenetrable.”
