Welcome to Grayson Books
Congratulations to the winner of the 2018 Grayson Books Poetry Contest: Edward Wilson for his collection called In a Rich Country.
This year's judge, Patrick Donnelly, also chose a
runner-up: Paul Martin for his collection River Scar.
Both books will be published in 2019.
For more info, see our contest page.
Congratulations to Michael Lepore, whose book Moral Injury has been awarded a gold medal by the Military Writers Society of America! His book Vietnam Voices has been awarded a bronze medal by the same organization.
Poetry of Presence earned an honorable mention in the poetry category of the Eric Hoffer awards. From the judges' comments: "These poems encourage us to look, not only inward but outward, to become more aware of how we are, or can be, more thoughtful in all aspects of the only life we have to live. The editors offer a book to savor, read slowly, smile at, sigh over, and cherish always."
Grayson Books offers two poetry contests a year; one for full-length collections and one for chapbook collections. Go to the contest page to find out more.
