Washington Writers’ Publishing House is a non-profit literary organization established in 1973 to foster the work of writers in the Washington-Baltimore area, and it sponsors annual prizes in poetry and fiction. The 2019 Jean Feldman Poetry Prize winner, Knapp was awarded the De Novo Poetry Prize in 2010 for The Spite House and in 2018 received the Robert H. Winner Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America. In her new collection she considers loss and its many reverberations, an exploration presided over by Emily Dickinson that at last leads Knapp to the recognition that art is a kind of immortality.
