Hats Off! to Tina Barr who won the 2017 Barrow Street Book Prize for her forthcoming poetry collection, Green Target. The book focuses on the self as target, on the way in which we target the Other, and on the Earth as target. It opens outward in concentric circles, to other cultures and histories. It includes a sequence of ekphrastic poems on the target paintings of Jasper Johns. The contest judge was Patricia Spears Jones.
