Faculty poetry honor

Assistant Professor of English Adele NeJame received Honorable Mention in Light of the Stars Poetry Contest for her publication in Lone Star Poetry Magazine, San Antonio, Texas: “Violets” and “Angels, a Living Hologram.” 

 She also recently published a poem, “Through the Holland Tunnel,” in Nimrod International Journal, Circulatory Systems. The back cover states, “Movement. Connection. Current.  What keeps us connected? What do we do when those connections break? What makes the movement of a circulatory system vital? How do we enter, leave, or take part in circulatory systems, when they often have no clear beginning or end?”  These writers “offer their answers to these questions—and ask intriguing questions of their own—in fresh, complex works of poetry. . . What sets the poems apart in this issue from those in other literary journals is the consistent beauty of the writing, a beauty that does not sacrifice boldness or experimentation to achieve a remarkable aesthetic level. It is as if the older stories they reconsider lend a lost harmony to these modern retellings.”
