Winner of the 2017 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize 

Jen Town’s poetry collection The Light of What Comes After is an autobiographical mosaic of memory and dreams that speaks to all of us trying to make some semblance of aging and what it means to live well. Tonally there is a back and forth throughout the poems: we see through the bold, colored lens of the inner-child fed on dreams, standing on tiptoe to look ahead, and also through the uncertain, remembering eyes of an adult trying to anchor themselves as life rushes by.
