Elana Wolff’s Poems Win First Prize in Echolocation’s The Chase Chapbook Contest

Congratulations to Elana Wolff, whose partner poems Fractals and A Panegyric have won First Prize in Echolocation’s “The Chase” Chapbook Contest!

The contest was to interpret the theme of “The Chase” in a fresh and quirky way, which Elana’s poetry clearly does. Echolocation is the literary journal produced by the Graduate English students at University of Toronto, published annually in the fall and printed with Coach House Press. The journal features the poetry, fiction, short plays and creative non-fiction of both established and emerging writers in and around Toronto. Visual art, photography, critical essays, interviews and reviews are also a vital aspect of Echolocation.

Elana Wolff is the author of four collections of poetry with Guernica: Birdheart (2001), Mask (2003), You Speak to Me in Trees (2006) – winner of the 2008 F.G. Bressani Prize for Poetry – and Startled Night (2011), which was long-listed for the 2012 ReLit Poetry Award. A collection of short essays on contemporary poems, titled Implicate Me, was released with Guernica in 2010. She also co-edited with Julie Roorda Poet to Poet—an anthology of poems written to poets and the stories that inspired them.
