for Re-Origin of Species

Jury Citation

”Alessandra Naccarato’s poems are visually powerful and sensually charged. Her imagery is as unexpected as it is memorable. These are poems adept at evoking the textures and sensations of place, even as they pay careful attention to sound, to the music of the line. Ranging from the sting of personal loss to navigating landscapes full of promise, Naccarato’s poetry interrogates the place where the personal meets the wild.” — 2015 RBC Bronwen Wallace Jury (Rachel Rose, Nilofar Shidmehr, and Fiona Tinwei Lam)
