Pongo Poetry Prize

The Pongo Poetry Prize

Since April, 2010, the Pongo Poetry Project has been proud to present the Pongo Poetry Prize to a poem submitted on Pongo’s website. Though previously awarded in December, Pongo will now be announcing this award in January to ensure all of the previous year’s submitters receive their due consideration. 

The winner will receive a $100 prize and an opportunity to read their poetry at Pongo’s annual Speaking Volumes in September.
