2021 Finalist

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers
for Selections from XANAX COWBOY

Jury Citation

“’XANAX COWBOY’ is a metapoetic romp that chews through the lexicons of pulp, pop, and academia, spitting out pieces that are at once campy, dark, and gnawingly tender. With a bravado and showmanship that challenge conventions of power, performance, gender, and genre, Hannah Green mounts a contemporary antihero with both a light and devastating touch. Through roving tours of tone and tactic, encompassing centos, lyrics, movie scenes, thesis statements, emails, confessions, and disclosures, Green knows just when to loosen the slack and when to jerk the line arrestingly taut.”
