Dr. Lindsay Illich won the Texas Review Press Breakthrough Prize in poetry for her collection rile & heave. The press will be publishing the book in February 2017 and describes it as a collection that "considers language as a devotion." Poems in the collection have been published widely in literary journals such as North American Review, Gulf Coast, Salamander, Hunger Mountain, and Adirondack Review. The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
