Congratulations to the following Fernwood authors on their recent award nominations and wins!
The jury citation: "Abolitionist Intimacies turns purposely woven structure and skillfully crafted poetry and prose into one carefully braided dance. The personal narrative becomes the collective struggle, and the unbelievable becomes the unforgettable. El Jones packs meaning into every word and phrase, intertwined with unwavering undertones of cultural genocide, Black annihilation, and the institutionalized trauma that continues to smother and suppress a people and their intimate and necessary cultural connections. Abolitionist Intimacies calls out and confronts societal realities with a narrative that is authentic and honest. The book’s messages embed themselves deep into a reader’s bones and mind and soul."
We are so excited for everyone's success and proud to call ourselves your publishers!
