We have had the distinct pleasure of working with Danielle Jones-Pruett on a number of occasions—we were thrilled to have two of her poems on the apt site last year, and another for this year’s print issue.
We’ve hosted her as a reader at Literary Firsts, and she was among the readers we had at our amazing release party for the Surveillance Issue of apt in January.
A few weeks back, we were so happy to hear that she’ll been included in the 2014 Best New Poets anthology.
And, just this morning, we learned that Danielle is one of six recipients of the 2014 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award! Danielle’s work is meditative and wry, honest and captivating—qualities indicative of fine literature. She deserves every accolade she gets, and we’re so proud of her.
