James M. Vaughan poetry award winner named

by Kalamalama staff

 

Nalani Scharsch of Honolulu has been named the recipient of HPU’s James M. Vaughan Award for Poetry for her two poems, “Night Dive” and “Wana.” Scharsch will receive $500 and will be recognized at HPU’s eighth annual Ko‘olau Writing Workshops on March 12, at the Hawai‘i Loa campus.

 

 

Scharsh’s poems, which were selected from 77 entries, will be published this summer in Volume 19 of HPU’s literary magazine, Hawai‘i Pacific Review.

HPU English professor Adele NeJame said that “Scharsch’s ‘Night Dive,’ in particular shows not only a lovely poetic sensibility of the world that she inhabits, but a close and powerful attention to ordinary moments that in intense observation move from the ordinary to the profound.”

The award for poetry is named after HPU alumnus James M. Vaughan who established a fund to enhance the literature and poetry programs at HPU. Each year HPU recognizes a Hawai‘i writer for an outstanding poem or group of poems.
