Poetry. Winner of the Transcontinental Poetry Prize (editor's choice), Kaya Oakes' TELEGRAPH "charts a coming back to life with uncompromising lucidity and sorrow. In poetry rife with a bodily knowledge of the inherent 'second ness' of women's history, Oakes writes for the one and the many. 'I wonder if this earth meant anything when I leant my form to it,' the personae wonders in the final poem, and wonderfully, readers will find that it does, thanks to the earnest care of Kaya Oakes' making"--Claudia Keelan. Kaya Oakes' work has appeared in Conduit, Volt, MiPoesias, Coconut, Shampoo, and many other journals. The recipient of awards and grants from the Academy of American Poets and the Bay Area Writing Project as well as two Pushcart nominations, she is also the senior editor of Kitchen Sink Magazine, and she teaches writing at the University of California, Berkeley.
