Tufts Poetry Awards: Claremont Graduate School
- Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award
Established in 1992 by Kate Tufts to honor her late husband, poet and writer Kingsley Tufts. The Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award is presented annually for a book by an emerging poet, one who is past the very beginning but has not yet reached the acknowledged pinnacle of his or her career.
While some poetry prizes discover and honor new voices and others crown an indisputably major body of work, this award at Claremont Graduate University aims to sustain a poet who is laboring in the difficult middle between these extremes. In 2009, the purse for this award will be $100,000.
Kate Tufts Discovery Award
Established in 1993, the Kate Tufts Discovery Award is presented annually for a first book by a poet of genuine promise. In 2009, the purse for this award will be $10,000.
Five copies of a book.
One-page cover sheet listing the title of the work and the poet's name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, if any.
List of previously published work.
