Poetry. The winner of the inaugural Wishing Jewel Prize, awarded for a manuscript that challenges our notions of what poems can do and what a book can be, schema geometrica is nothing short of visionary. It juxtaposes quasi-sonnets and erasures with illustrations by Marnie Galloway, a Chicago-area cartoonist and illustrator, and Julian Van Dyke, a Lansing-area muralist, painter, and children’s book author. schema geometrica will be accompanied by a number of audio and video poems, available online this fall; this is a multimedia collaboration between Hinrichsen and Dylan Rogers, a Lansing-area musician and proprietor of The Robin Theatre, and Tom Larter, musician and composer.
Flesh-plastique is Dennis Hinrichsen's tenth full- length collection of poetry. His most recent work includes schema geometrica, winner of the Wishing Jewel Prize from Green Linden Press, and This Is Where I Live I Have Nowhere Else To Go, winner of the 2020 Grid Poetry Prize. His other awards include the 2015 Rachel Wetzsteon Chapbook Prize from Map Literary for Electrocution, A Partial History, the 2014 Michael Waters Poetry Prize from Southern Indiana Review Press for Skin Music, the 2010 Tampa Poetry Prize for Rip-tooth, the 2008 FIELD Poetry Prize for Kurosawa's Dog and the 1999 Akron Poetry Prize for Detail from The Garden of Earthly Delights as well as the 2016 Third Coast Poetry Prize and a 2014 Best of the Net Award.
