Toi Derricotte & Cornelius Eady Chapbook Prize 2016
This year ends on a good note as my pamphlet Resurrection Man was selected by judge Robin Coste Lewis, for the 2016 Toi Derricotte & Cornelius Eady Chapbook Prize. It will be published by Jai-Alai Books in spring 2017. As a winner I will receive $500, publication by Jai-Alai Books in spring 2017, a week-long residency at The Writers Room at The Betsy Hotel and 10 complimentary copies of the chapbook. I will give a feature reading at the 2017 O, Miami Poetry Festival.
Established in 2015 to celebrate Cave Canem’s 20th anniversary, the annual Toi Derricotte & Cornelius Eady Chapbook Prize is dedicated to the discovery of exceptional chapbook-length manuscripts by black poets, and is presented in collaboration with the O, Miami Poetry Festival and the CUNY Graduate Center.
