The inaugural winner of the Toi Derricotte + Cornelius Eady Chapbook Prize, Rio Cortez's I have learned to define a field as a space between mountains, will be released by Jai-Alai Books the evening of Thursday, April 14, 2016 at a party hosted by The Betsy-South Beach. (Here's an event link.)
If you're unable to join us, the book will be made available for purchase online from the Jai-Alai Books website beginning on April 15, 2016.
We could not be more thrilled to be involved in the publication of Rio's manuscript, and we are incredibly grateful to Cave Canem Foundation and The Writer's Room at the Betsy-South Beach. We would also like to thank the contest judge, Ross Gay.
