Gwendolyn Brooks Centennial Poetry Prize

The Furious Flower Poetry Center is pleased to announce The Gwendolyn Brooks Centennial Poetry Prize, which will be judged by
Patricia Smith.

About the prize:
Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000) was well known for her support of young, up-and-coming Black poets. This prize, celebrating the centennial of her birth, recognizes and seeks to continue this legacy by providing both recognition and financial support to emerging African American poets.

The winner will receive a $2000 award, and an honorable mention will be awarded a $1000 prize. Both poets will also be awarded a public reading at the Furious Flower Poetry Center during our Brooks Centennial Celebrations in April 2017. Accommodations and a $500 honorarium will be provided. Winners will be announced in early March.
