the 2008 Bywords John Newlove Poetry Award

for poems published on bywords.ca between September, 2007 and August, 2008.
Judge for the 2008 Award was George Bowering who said this about the winning poem:

"It is witty and thoughtful, mysterious and competent. It does not sacrifice
prosody and notation to affect. It shows confidence and practised skill
on the part of its author."

Winner: Rob Friday, Manatee, August 2008
Honourable Mention: Joe Hickey, A Billion Billion, February, 2008
Honourable Mention: Ben Ladouceur, new house, November, 2007

Lupercalia, the chapbook of last year's winner, Sean Moreland, is available right now by contacting editor@bywords.ca and soon through the Bywords.ca online store.
