Guernica Gives a Shout Out

May 2, 2006

Guernica is proud to congratulate poet Sandy Tseng, who recently won the The Nation’s “Discovery” Prize for Poetry.

In June of last year, “The Bypass” (one of ten poems in Sandy’s winning manuscript), was originally published in these pages. (Find it here). It was Tseng’s first published poem.

The reading for Discovery Prizewinners is this Monday, May 8 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

While many of our past contributors have established careers in arts and politics, we have published many lesser-known artists, writers and opinion-givers and take great pride in giving new and emerging voices a place to be seen
