Erica Dawson‘s debut collection, Big-Eyed Afraid, won the 2006 Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize. Her second collection, The Small Blades Hurt, was released earlier this year. Slate says Dawson’s work, “generates great energy by pulling at the impossible and sometimes pleasurable tangles of what is constant in us, and what is disposable in the world.” Erica’s poems have appeared in Best American Poetry 2012 and 2008, Poetry: A Pocket Anthology, Harvard Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, and other journals and anthologies. She writes a column, “Dark & Sinful,” for Creative Loafing Tampa.
