Stephen Ratcliffe, winner of The Poetry Center Book Award for 2014, reads from Selected Days (Counterpath Press, 2012). "Like a core sample drilled down through the days, these 'Selected Days' come up with layered and differentiated strata in evidence of time perceived as phenomenally present on the poet/reader's eye, ear and persistent body moved to work, steadily and across an extensive sweep of one person's human time," the competition’s anonymous judge stated.
