Award description

Established in 1992 by Kate Tufts to honor her late husband, poet and writer Kingsley Tufts. 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.

While some poetry prizes discover and honor new voices and others crown an indisputably major body of work, this award at Claremont Graduate University aims to sustain a poet who is laboring in the difficult middle between these extremes.

The purse for this award is $100,000.
