Joy Harjo wins Jackson Poetry Prize

The prize is awarded annually by Poets & Writers to an American poet of exceptional talent who deserves wider recognition, and aims to provide what poets need: time and encouragement to write. There is no application process; poets are nominated by a panel of their peers who remain anonymous.

Joy Harjo’s Crazy Brave received the American Book Award in 2013. She sits on Before Columbus Foundation’s Board of Directors.
