Press Awards for ‘Her Texas’

Her Texas: Story, Poems, Images & Song, includes the work of 60 contemporary Texas women songsters, poets, creative writers (fiction and nonfiction), artists and photographers. In late March, Texas Press Women awarded the anthology first place in “edited work.” The 2015 anthology later won second place in the National Federation of Press Women   competition.

Congratulations to co‐editors Donna Walker-Nixon, Cassy Burleson, Rachel Crawford and Ashley Palmer, publisher Bryce Milligan of Wings Press, and all of the contributors who shared their work in the anthology, including Dr. Carmen Tafolla, ASAT’s 2016 keynote speaker.
