Kingsley Tufts Prize
Organization: Claremont Graduate University
The Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award is presented annually for a work by an emerging poet, one who is past the very beginning but has not yet reached the acknowledged pinnacle of his or her career. The work submitted must be a book published between September 15 of the previous year and September 15 of the current year. Manuscripts, CDs, and chapbooks are not accepted. Work must be original poetry written originally in English by a poet who is a citizen or legal resident alien of the United States. The work may be submitted by its author or, with the poet's consent, by a publisher, agent, or other representative.
