One of the happiest pieces of news I've received in recent months is that my hybrid-forms project P*R*I*D*E won the inaugural Hunger Mountain Chapbook Prize. It was released during June 2020 (Pride Month!) in a limited-edition volume (with stunning cover designed by Kelly McMahon) to honor the victims of the Pulse shooting by name and likeness.

“This collection of poetic microessays is the hybridity we need right now—lyric & narrative, real & imagined, fierce & tender, in love with the world & critical of it, so much fun & deadly serious. I admire Wade’s range of timbres, the ways this collage makes me feel validated & seen, & how much PRIDE makes me hopeful for a better future.”

—Erin Stalcup, Hunger Mountain Editor
