The CantoMundo Poetry Prize is open until April 15, 2018.
The prize is for a book of poetry by a Latina/o writer.
Since its founding in 2009, CantoMundo has cultivated and supported a community of Latina/o poets and the poetry they create, and the University of Arkansas Press has long been committed to publishing diverse kinds of poetry by a diversity of poets.
The series editors are Deborah Paredez and Celeste Gúzman Mendoza, cofounders and codirectors of CantoMundo.
Together they will select a winning manuscript and write a preface for the book. The University of Arkansas Press will publish the book and the winning author will receive $1,000.
Manuscripts must be between forty-eight and ninety pages. Individual poems may have been published in chapbooks, journals, and anthologies.
A readers’ fee of $28 must be paid at the time of submission.
