2016 CONTEST WINNERS

The James Baldwin Literature Prize

It is with great pleasure that we announce the winner of The James Baldwin Literature Prize of $1,000 to Hafsa Musa. With words, images, and sensations otherwise overlooked, unseen, or only ineffably experienced, Hafsa Musa’s three poems, “Wagmu Pejuia,” “Roundhouse Theory,” and “Autumnal Whip,” capture profound phenomena in natural and unnatural worlds alike. Earth, texture, political trespasses, psychological massacre, and historical derangement meld, reshape, and give life to a formidable perspective. Musa's poetry collection will appear in the inaugural print issue of The New Engagement, releasing in late-March 2017, along with the other finalists. Read the Print Issue No. 1 preview.

"You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive."
