One thought on “SUBMIT: The Kundiman Poetry Prize for Asian American writers

  1. Great to see this prize get off the ground.

    And speaking of January 15,2010: that is also the postmark deadline for the fourth edition of the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize, which supports the publication of a first book by a Latino/a poet.

    The final judge this year is Cuban-American poet Silvia Curbelo.

    The winning poet, in addition to a standard book contract with University of Notre Dame Press, will get $1000 and a reading at Notre Dame after the book is published.
