Stop by the library during the 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Poetry Marathon to enjoy poetry read by present and past winners of CGU’s Kingsley & Kate Tufts Poetry Awards.

The Tufts poetry awards – based at Claremont Graduate University and given for poetry volumes published in the preceding year – are not only two of the most prestigious prizes a contemporary poet can receive, they also come with hefty purses: $100,000 for the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award and $10,000 for the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. This makes the Kingsley Tufts award the world’s largest monetary prize for a single collection of poetry. And for most poets who have just published their first collection of verse, $10,000 should keep the pen scribbling. 2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Kingsley & Kate Tufts Poetry Awards.
