English lecturer wins prestigious poetry award

Jaimee Hills, a lecturer in English, won the Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize for collection How to Avoid Speaking.

The prestigious award was selected by English poet Anthony Thwaite from nearly 500 submissions. The collection is an exploration of speech, sound and strange noises. It begins with the first confrontation with language and ends with a voice beyond the dead.

As the winner, Hills receives $3,000 and read alongside Thwaite at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C., in late October..
