Poetry. Winner of the Snowbound Chapbook Award, chosen by Kathleen Jesme."WESTON'S UNSENT LETTERS TO MODOTTI inhabits the fluid space between history and imagination," says Kathleen Jesme. "Parmenter's extended persona poem deftly investigates the named but uncommunicated, that which is unfinished, unsent, unlived. Weston exists only as an eye behind the photographic lens, and is unable to fully inhabit the rest of the world, or to send the letters he writes to his sometime model and lover."
Chad Parmenter is the author of another innovative chapbook, Bat & Man: A Sonnet Comic Book (Finishing Line, 2012). He has recently had poems published in Best American Poetry, Harvard Review, Kenyon Review, Black Warrior Review, and Hotel Amerika. He earned his MFA at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and a PhD at the University of Missouri, and he now lives near Niagara Falls.Author City: LEWISTON, NY USA
