We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Chris Toll Prize. After considering many dozen excellent and fitting manuscripts, and after long discussion, the committee of judges decided on My Friend Ken Harvey, a collection of poems by Barrett Warner. More information about the chapbook, including an excerpt AND an original, never-before-seen cover collage by Chris Toll, is coming soon.

The winner receives 25 copies of the book and cash. Chris was an ardent believer in paying poets for their work.
