‘Tug’ poetry represents ‘New Voices’

A poetry chapbook by Gail Hosking, AU class of 1972, has been selected as a finalist in Finishing Line Press’s “New Women's Voices” poetry chapbook contest for 2013.

The book - a collection of 24 poems, many previously published in literary journals – will be published in May 2014. The theme that weaves through the poems, said Gail, deals with her father, who was KIA (non-combat deaths including the missing and deaths in captivity) in Vietnam in 1967 and awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously in 1969, when she was a freshman at AU.
