The unpublished poetry manuscript We Hold These Truths was a runner-up in the 2019 Hopper Poetry Prize. The judge, Kathleen Hellen, offered very kind commentary here. It was also a finalist for the 2020 Wheelbarrow Books Poetry Prize, and an earlier version was a semifinalist for the 2017 Philip Levine Prize.
