SUNY Cobleskill Associate Professor Annie Christain Wins 2020 Driftwood Press Poem Contest

Cobleskill, NY –  Driftwood Press has announced that Leigh Ann (Annie) Christain is the winner of the 2020 In-House Poem Contest. Her poem, “Every Time I Go Back Is Encoded in Pi,” will appear in the July 2020 issue alongside a spotlight interview with the poet. Driftwood Press is a bi-annual literary magazine with a focus on fiction, poetry, photography, graphic narrative, and interviews.

“Other life forms appear, and they only show up to watch me pin her down in her own soul-webbing I stripped and sewed together throughout my lifetimes. The long game.

 

I turn the crank on the alien machinery; I join her on a higher artificial plane as her master. I rock her through the internal explosions. She remembers we have always been this.”*

*This excerpt from “Every Time I Go Back Is Encoded in Pi” appears here by the author’s permission.

 

Her second manuscript of poetry, “The Vanguards of Holography,” was also shortlisted for the Eyewear Publishing 2019 International Beverly Prize for Literature, an annual series for outstanding works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and criticism in the English language.

Christain is an associate professor of composition and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at SUNY Cobleskill and author of “Tall As You Are Tall Between Them,” published in 2016 by C&R Press.
