Poetry. WOODNOTE is Christine Deavel's debut and winner of the 2011 Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize and the 2012 Washington State Book Award in Poetry. Indiana is the backdrop for poems that range through time and lyrically blend poetry, prose, and fragment to deliver their news: "Knowledge comes as a covering snow; below is the old understanding."
