1st Annual Chapbook Prize: And the WINNER IS...

After careful review and re-review of a group of very fine poetry manuscript finalists by contest judge and primo poet Heather McNaugher, we are pleased to announce Eric M.R. Webb of Burke, Virginia as the winner of Blast Furnace's First Annual Poetry Chapbook Competition 2014 for his collection, "How to Lose Faith." The First and Second Runners Up were the gifted B.D. Fischer and Coco Owen, respectively.

Eric M. R. Webb's poems have appeared at, in Thunderclap! magazine, in The Cossack Review, and most recently in Pea River Journal. He published two interviews in Barely South Review (2012 & 2013), and is editor of Nobs Review or No Bullshit Review (depending on the company, he says).

Eric's manuscript will be published by Blast Furnace and available for purchase in April 2015. Stay tuned over the stretch of months leading up to its printing to learn details about price and how to add a copy of his winning chapbook to your poetry collection.

A BIG THANK YOU and much gratitude to all of the talented writers who submitted their work for consideration, and CONGRATULATIONS, ERIC!
