On What Sun a 2023 Colorado Prize for Poetry finalist

April 4, 2023

Dear Ezra Feldman,

Thank you so much for entering the 2023 Colorado Prize for Poetry. Final judge Felicia Zamora has selected Gale Thompson’s “Mountain Amnesia” as this year’s winner, but I wanted to personally let you know that out of 805 entries, “On What Sun” was among the thirty-five finalists. The judges–preliminary and final–thought very highly of your work, and it was not an easy decision to select just one manuscript.
