For over 25 years the Kingsley & Kate Tufts awards program has cultivated a community confident in the persistence of poetry. Claremont Graduate University's Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award grants $100,000 for a book by a mid-career poet, and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award offers $10,000 for a recently published first book of poetry. Join us to celebrate this year's poets and hear poems by the 2019 winners and finalists.
Genevieve Kaplan is a poet, book artist, and micro-press publisher. Author of In the Ice House, winner of the A Room of Her Own Foundation's poetry publication prize, and three chapbooks, she coordinates the Kingsley & Kate Tufts Poetry Awards at Claremont Graduate University in southern California.
