TINA BARR 2017 Barrow Street Book Prize Winner

We are excited to announce that Tina Barr is the winner of this year’s poetry book prize selected by contest judge Patricia Spears Jones. Barr’s collection Green Target will be published in 2018.  

The book focuses on the self as target, on the way in which we target the Other, and on the Earth as target.  It opens outward in concentric circles, to other cultures and histories.  It includes a sequence of ekphrastic poems on the target paintings of Jasper Johns.  

Hats Off! to Tina Barr who won the 2017 Barrow Street Book Prize for her forthcoming poetry collection, Green Target.
