Jury Citation

“Trish Salah’s poetry is ambulant, ecstatic, and deeply pleasurable. It shakes everything awake. At once asking you to slow down for meaning and speed up for desire, Salah propels the reader through cataclysmic line breaks, emotional changes of form, across temporality and subjectivity, all with a glinting “I” cast back on itself. Her poems produce mysteries even as they reveal themselves to you, to find there is no end to the longing. An emerging trans poetic is on dazzling display here, and it is in very capable hands for the foreseeable future.” -- 2018 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Ali Blythe, Greg Kearney, and Shannon Webb-Campbell)
