The Four Lakes Prize in Poetry

Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin Department of English
Ronald Wallace, Series Editor

The Four Lakes Prize in Poetry is given annually to one new book of poetry submitted by a past winner of the Brittingham and Pollak competitions, and is selected by an editorial board comprised of poets in the University of Wisconsin’s creative writing program. Submissions to the Brittingham and Pollak competitions by previous winners are automatically considered for The Four Lakes Prize. With this prize the Press will continue to welcome poets new to the series through its annual competitions, while supporting the winners’ further development by publishing new works.

Immortality
Alan Feldman

Winner of the 2015 Four Lakes Prize in Poetry

“A richly engaged, near flawless collection. Like those magic mineral waters pumped from deep in the earth, Feldman’s poems can cure emotional arthritis and ventilate the soul. Better poems than these cannot be written in this confiding, intelligent humanist mode.”
—Tony Hoagland, author of Twenty Poems That Could Save America and Sweet Ruin

Otherwise Unseeable
Betsy Sholl

Winner of the 2014 Four Lakes Prize in Poetry

“For a good four decades now, Betsy Sholl has been producing a poetry of stern self-reflection, risky lyrical fluency, and a deeply empathetic social consciousness. With Otherwise Unseeable, she gives us her finest collection thus far, a book which has refined itself into something I can only call wisdom—sometimes rueful, sometimes fierce. This is work in which, as one poem memorably puts it, we must ‘unlatch our wounds and love our ruins.’”
—David Wojahn
