Naomi Shihab Nye had this to say about Crow Mercies: "There's a knife sharpener in California who ends his notes, 'Stay sharp and shiny.' This is what Penelope Schott does with words, images, stories and memories -- sharp! shiny! -- she is not afraid to startle or jolt. A reader feels electrified." And Pat Schneider says "To read these poems is to fall in love (again) with poetry."
The Sarah Lantz Memorial Poetry Book Prize was established to commemorate the work of Sarah Lantz, who first book Far Beyond Triage, was published by Calyx Books in 2007 -- just after Sarah died from a brain tumor. The prize stands as a memorial to a great poet, writer, thinker, and enthusiast for life.
We hope you can join us!
