Poetry. WHITE CHICK by Nancy Keating is the winner of the 2020 Elixir Press Antivenom Poetry Award. Contest judge, Sarah Kennedy, had this to say about it: "Nancy Keating's WHITE CHICK races through self-doubt, dubious prayer, politics, and shame, pausing to dwell on the serious topics of race, class, and presidential administrations (both past and present). It's unlike most poetry collections that focus on such weighty issues, though. The sassy and irreverent tone keeps the pace fast, and the cultural commentary speeds by, though it always hits its mark as it goes."
Nancy Keating's poetry has appeared in New Letters, Poetry Daily, The Gettysburg Review, The Southampton Review, Southwest Review, and elsewhere. A two- time Pushcart Prize nominee, she has an MFA from Stony Brook University and teaches at Farmingdale State College.Author City: DENVER, CO USA
