Katie Manning's full-length manuscript, Hereverent, was a semi-finalist in the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry.

Crab Orchard Review was founded in 1995 and seeks diverse voices capturing the range of contemporary American writing. The Crab Orchard Series in Poetry began in 1998 as a copublishing venture of the Crab Orchard Review literary journal (published by the English department at Southern Illinois University) and Southern Illinois University Press with a mission to publish some of the best new work by established and new voices in American poetry. 

Several poems from Hereverent were published in A Door with a Voice (Agape Editions, 2016), which is available online at this link.
