The Kingsley Tufts Poetry Awards - $100,000 Prize - NO Entry Fee #seanocarolan #writing #poetry #contests #writing contests #writing competitions
Every poet, writer or artist desires to receive more than just acknowledgment for their works—they also desire to receive a significant paycheck. For two phenomenal poets annually, the Tufts Poetry Awards exemplify both: recognition and a hefty pay day. The Tufts Poetry Awards include two poetry awards: 1) the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award which awards $100,000 to a first-place winner; and 2)the Kate Tufts Discovery Award, which awards $10,000 to a first-place winner. Both Awards have NO entry fees!
The Tufts Poetry Awards— sponsored by the School of Arts & Humanities atClaremont Graduate University— are two of the largest distinguished awards that a modern poet can reap. These hefty cash prizes establish the Kingsley Tufts Award as the planet's biggest financial payout for a sole compilation of poetry.
For many poets who have just released their first compilation of poetry, a payment of $10,000 will help them progress further in their careers. In contrast to some poetry and fiction awards—which are crownings to have a productive vocation or to release a chassis of work— Claremont Graduate University established theKingsley Tufts Poetry Award to celebrate the poet and furnish the assets and resources that will enable poets and writers to push themselves towards reaching the climax of their trade.
