We have wonderful news about two of our authors, Twyla Hansen and Trevino Brings Plenty.

Backwaters Press is pleased to announce Twyla Hansen’s newest book, Rock • Tree • Bird, is Winner of this year’s WILLA Literary Award in Poetry by Women Writing the West. The WILLA national competition is named for Nebraska’s own Willa Cather. Congratulations to all the award winners and finalists. For the complete list, go to Women Writing in the West website.

Trevino Brings Plenty’s poem “Not Anyone Can Have One,” from Wakpa Wanagi Ghost River, will be included on an audio playlist that will be used in the Native American Galleries of the Peabody Museum at Harvard for two months starting October 1, 2018 and ending November 30, 2018. The tour and player will be loaned free of charge to adult visitors to add orality to the galleries, update the displays with contemporary voices, and highlight the achievements of Native American artists.
