Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers

Jury Citation

“Reading Ali Blythe’s first collection, one is in continuous transit among bodies, species, images, phenomena, and myths. Wry, philosophical, and voluptuous, Twoism builds a lyrical stage made of movement along lines enjambed like switchbacks, taut couplets made in reversals, and stanzas redoubling division and displacement. His thoughts stretched wide, longing in between, Blythe illuminates a world both ruined and beautiful.” -- 2017 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Jane Eaton Hamilton, Elio Iannacci, and Trish Salah)
