Tebot Bach announces
The Patricia Bibby First Book Award
$1,000 and Book Publication

Patricia Bibby was a beginning poet whose poems expressed her love of life while living with cancer. Her kindness, humor, and optimism inspired the love of many new friends in the poetry community. She died in 2004, at 43, without having been published. In naming the First Book Award after Patricia Bibby, Tebot Bach honors the aspirations and spirit of all beginning poets. David St. John serves as judge for this competition that looks for a fresh, new voice in poetry.
