Curbstone Press would like to congratulate Aracelis Girmay for winning the 2009 Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award for her poetry collection, Teeth. This award reflects outstanding literary achievement in the judgment of a committee of scholar-critic-writers who have professional and personal commitments to excellence in literature and the encouragement of creative writing. Beginning in autumn of 2009, the winning authors from this competition will be invited to tour the GLCA member colleges, where they will read from their works and engage with students and faculty members in a variety of contexts, such as discussions, lectures, colloquia, workshops, and interviews.
