Catherine Abbey Hodges: Her most recent work, Instead of Sadness (Gunpowder Press, 2015), is the winner of the inaugural Barry Spacks Poetry Prize. Instead of Sadness is a collection of poems that Hodges said relates to the “strangeness and wonder of being alive; the poems speak to how brief our time is and to the piercingly mysterious companionship of beauty and sorrow.”
"January Song," a poem from Instead of Sadness, was featured on NPR's The Writer’s Almanac for January 21, 2016.
Ms Hodges is also the author of All the While, a chapbook from Finishing Line Press. Her recent work has appeared in venues including The Southern Review, Tar River Poetry, Cider Press Review, Connotation Press, and has been selected for Verse Daily. She teaches English at Porterville College, where her students keep her awake and astonished.
