After a long delay (sorry, sorry), we’re very happy to announce the co-winners of the 2012 Keystone Chapbook Prize. Guest judge Brent Goodman has selected Field Trip to the Underworld by Hayden Saunier as the winner among writers with previous book publication; Marjorie Maddox’s Recently Young in a People Gone Old was the runner-up. Among writers with no previous book publication, Brent selected Wooden Boys by Michael Hurley; Katherine Fallon’s The Tooth-Maker’s Daughter was the runner-up.
The winning chapbooks will be published next spring. Congratulations to all the finalists–it was a pleasure to read work at such a consistently high level.
