Voertman / Academy of American Poets Prize

2020 Voertman / Academy of American Poets Prize

Aza Pace

Kathleen Graber has selected "My Father Asks What I'm Looking At" by Aza Pace as the winner of the 2020 Voertman Academy of American Poets Prize.

She writes: "My Father Asks What I'm Looking At" unfolds at the intersection of image and imagination. Advancing at the pace of a quiet evening coming on, this poem offers its readers a steadily deepening exploration into the mystery of our connection to one another and to all things.

Aza will receive $200 and be named in the Academy of American Poets annual report.

Congratulations, Aza!
