Asian American poet receives 2006 Barnard Women Poets Prize

Cathy Park Hong was recently selected by Adrienne Rich to receive the 2006 Barnard Women Poets Prize for her text 'Dance Dance Revolution' which means that it will be published in April 2007 and include a free public reading at Barnard College in New York.

The subject of the text is intriguing enough, and it will be interesting to see how well it's carried out, as it would clearly fall between both speculative literature and identity poetics from the way they describe it presently.

*Ok, I confess, I have to admire a poet with the nerve to name her collection after 'Dance Dance Revolution' :)
