  • Writing poetry?

The Zócalo Public Square Poetry Prize is accepting submissions.

The prize ($500, and a published interview) will be awarded to the U.S. poet whose poem best evokes a connection to place.

‘“Place” may be interpreted by the poet as a place of historical, cultural, political, or personal importance; it may be a literal, imaginary, or metaphorical landscape.’

Deadline: February 4, 2019.
