Winter Fedyk - 2010 John Newlove Poetry Award
Uncle Brad - Winter Fedyk (published February 2010)
"This year’s winner of the John Newlove Poetry Award stood out from a strong field of finalists for its rich execution of focalized perception and its economical rendering of character through the use of terse, gritty idiom. Character in its formative context is communicated from the child’s perspective through concrete observations of small things, until the adult’s worldview arrives and is heard in the poem like a drill that has pierced its way through the distance of time and memory."
