Dr. José Alvergue has been awarded the 2019 Poet's Out Loud Editor's Prize for his manuscript scenery, which will be published by Fordham Press in fall 2020. There are two awards given each year: the Poets Out Loud Prize and the POL Editor's Prize.
Poets Out Loud (POL) is a community of poetry at Fordham University at Lincoln Center in New York. POL provides opportunities for the creation, dissemination and enjoyment of poetry. The POL Book Series, run in collaboration with Fordham University Press, issues two new full-length volumes of poetry annually, awarding publication and honoraria to the best manuscripts submitted in an international competition.
