Concrete Wolf Banner

2017 Winner

Coming Fall 2018

We are proud to announce that the Winner of the 2017 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition has been selected by our final judge, Natasha Kochicheril Moni.

This year's winner is Patty Crane of Windsor, MA, for her manuscript something flown.

Natasha writes: "I love this chapbook's play with form/formlessness, the way in which the poem builds upon itself creating its own mythology, offering visual space, breath. The author has given the reader so many reasons to read and reread this book."

something flown will be available in Fall 2018
