    On May 24 Plough will announce and introduce the winning poet and two finalists, who will read and discuss their poems in a live virtual event with Plough poetry editor A. M. Juster and Rhina P. Espaillat, the beloved ninety-year-old Dominican-American poet for whom the award is named.

    Plough’s third annual Rhina P. Espaillat Poetry Award competition attracted over 900 poems, including many from acclaimed poets (judging is blind). The overall winner receives $2000 and two runners-up receive $250. All three are published in Plough Quarterly. Go to the Rhina P. Espaillat Poetry Award page to submit your poems.
