Misprison by Marina Weiss, winner of the 2017 Girls Like Us chapbook contest, chosen by Aracelis Girmay.
"Misprison continues to stun me with its fevered diction and deeply full and realized formal range. A truly remarkable collection of poems that leave me wanting to read more and more from this writer." -- Aracelis Girmay
