Award History

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)
