We’re so excited to announce that Aaron Caycedo-Kimura (Poetry ’20) has won the Slapering Hol Press Chapbook Competition! His chapbook Ubasute will be published in March 2021.

Aaron says, My chapbook collection Ubasute is about my parents who have both passed away, my father in 2011 and my mother in 2015. These poems keep them alive in my life and give me a way to continue honoring them. I’m fortunate and grateful to have had the parents I did.

Congratulations, Aaron!  We can’t wait to read your work.
