2019 Tomaž Šalamun Prize winner + new editors' choice selection

Emily Pettit selected Jennifer Liberts' chapbook Tender Organs as winner of the 2019 Tomaž Šalamun Prize. Liberts will receive a $500 honorarium and a free one-month residency at the Tomaž Šalamun Centre for Poetry in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and her chapbook will be published by Factory Hollow Press.

Because there were so many excellent submissions, this year we started an editors' choice selection, in which one of the remaining finalists' chapbooks is selected for publication by Factory Hollow Press. The 2019 editors' choice selection is Dalton Day's chapbook Un. His chapbook also will be published.
