Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition

The Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition honors the work and legacy of the poet and critic Randall Jarrell, who taught at what is now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for nearly eighteen years. The competition is open to any writer who is a legal resident of North Carolina or a member of the North Carolina Writers’ Network.

Gabrielle Freeman of Greenville, NC, is the winner of the 2015 Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition for her poem, “Failure to Obliterate.” “Combining a haunting and incandescent world with full attention to sound textures, ‘Failure to Obliterate’ is wholly original,” final judge William Wright said. “Centered on the motif of the manta ray, the speaker and the reader are drawn into a primordial, fully realized world in which identity conflates with other realities, other sentience.”

Failure to Obliterate (Winner) by GABRIELLE FREEMAN; Testimony (First Runner-up) by ANN DEAGON; Every Field of Paradise (Second Runner-up) by RALPH EARLE; Blackout (Honorable Mention) by MICHAEL WHITE; Divided (Honorable Mention) by LUKE HANKINS; The Way Desire Touches (Honorable Mention) by MALAIKA KING ALBRECHT
