Winner of the Stevens Manuscript Competition of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies Press, judged by Peter Meinke. This full-length collection contains the poems of MERMAID CAFÉ plus many more.


The judge Peter Meinke commented, “ AQUA CURVES leaped out of a large pile of strong manuscripts as more than a collection of poems. This is a complete book, with a mature vision expressed with passion, wit, and lyrical intensity. Congratulations to Karen Braucher for her accomplishment. I’m looking forward to continued reading of these clear-eyed and generous poems, and the ones that follow, in the years to come.”
