  1. I hadn’t heard about this award, before, but I am interested in it. Part of my work is exploring the experiences of schizophrenia, considering it as a psychiatric disability rather than a psychosis or mental illness. I know, with my form, it’s more “things taken away” than “things added on” but it’s still more a barrier to a fear-free and anxiety-free life than otherwise, if you know what I mean.

    The only problem I have is that it says “fiction”, which at least implies my speculative verse is not welcome.
