Announcing the 2015 Poetry Prize Winner

Our Prize judge Eduardo Corral has selected “Between the Bloodhounds and My Shrinking Mouth” by Caitlin Scarano as the winner of the 2015 Poetry Prize! Her poem will appear in the Winter 2015 issue of The Indiana Review. We received a great number of excellent poems for consideration in this contest, and the decision was a difficult one. We thank all prize entrants for their interest in and support of The Indiana Review.

 

2015 Indiana Review Poetry Prize Winner

Caitlin Scarano, “Between the Bloodhounds and My Shrinking Mouth”

Corral says this about the winning poem: “The voice in this poem is ravenous and disciplined. It strikes and it croons. It’s splendid and captivating. It releases gorgeous sonic and visual energies. Vivid images linger in the mind, music beautifully rattles the lines. I’m especially struck by how the voice approaches and retreats from memory. ‘Between the Bloodhounds and My Shrinking Mouth’ is a startling poem.”
