Winner of the 2015 Slope Editions Chapbook Contest
Jasmine Dreame Wagner's poems are bold, precise, and lushly imagined. In Ask, she re-envisiones the conventions of online venues such as Twitter, OKCupid, and Tumblr, infusing them with a persistent, inventive lyricism. The result is an exciting reconfiguration of commercial language and culture. Slope Editions is thrilled to create a unique, materially interactive chapbook to match Wagner's fusing of poetry and internet.
