2012 Janet B. McCabe Poetry Prize Winners

August 27, 2012

Ruminate is proud to announce the winners from our 2012 Janet B. McCabe Poetry Prize, as selected by finalist judge Li-Young Lee. The finalists for the poetry contest were selected by the Ruminate staff. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and thanks to everyone who entered the contest! First place winner, Nicole Rollender, was awarded a $1000 cash prize, and her poem, and second-place winner Temple Cone’s story, are featured in Ruminate‘s Issue 25: Unraveling the Dark
First Place
Nicole Rollender Necessary Work Nicole’s poetry and nonfiction have been published in various literary magazines, including Alaska Quarterly Review, the strange fruit, Literary Mama, Salt Hill Journal and Creative Nonfiction. Her poetry chapbook Arrangement of Desire was published by Pudding House Publications in 2007. Nicole, who has an MFA in creative writing from Penn State University, is editor of Stitches magazine, which has been nominated for two Jesse H. Neal Awards and won the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) Magazine of the Year Award in 2011. She lives with her husband, daughter, and two cats in Southern New Jersey, on the edge of the Pine Barrens. Nicole loves exploring Civil War battlefields and re-reading her very-tattered Agatha Christie mysteries.   
Second Place
Temple Cone What I Meant by Joy Temple is the author of three books of poetry, most recently That Singing from March Street Press, and of six chapbooks, most recently The Waters Beyond the Ark from Finishing Line Press. An associate professor of English at the U.S. Naval Academy, he is also an avid marathoner, which may have something to do with his having been a medieval flagellant in a past life.
