Best Author / Poet

Sharon Bridgforth

Sharon Bridgforth's legendary root wy'mn theatre company pulled a 1996 Critics Pick for "Theatre of the Soul." This, however, is the first showing for our local bridger of "traditional storytelling and nontraditional verse," according to the root wo'mn herself on the back cover of her first book the bull-jean stories. While both the smoooooth and sultry author Sharon and the badass, hot-butt character bull-jean have appeared in numerous plays and published anthologies, this is their first ever, totally solo thang. What a book. What a writer. What a glorious thang it is. But, then, you already knew that, now didn't you?
