Megan Ross Nominated for 2018 Brittle Paper Award for Poetry
06 Nov 2018
Congratulations to PEN SA member Megan Ross, who has been nominated for the second year running in the Brittle Paper Awards.
This year she is nominated for the 2018 Brittle Paper Award for Poetry, for her poem “Origin Myths”, “a sum of motherhoods across generations, a meditation on familial bonds and how they shape familiarity, love, loneliness, and private violences.”
The poem was originally published in her collection Milk Fever, and in The Single Story Foundation Journal.
Ross won the 2017 Brittle Paper Award for Fiction.
Begun in 2017 to mark our seventh anniversary, the Awards aim to recognize the finest, original pieces of writing by Africans published online. The $1,100 cash prize is split across five categories.
