Worcester Poet Laureate Juan Matos shared in a Facebook post earlier this week the news the Plough Publishing is honoring poet and translated Rhina Espaillat. In summer 2021, Plough will announce the winners of its first annual Rhina Espaillat Poetry Award. The winning poet will receive a two thousand dollar award and the winning poem will be published in Plough Quarterly. In addition, two finalists will receive two hundred and fifty dollars as well as publication in Plough.
The WCPA was honored to support a virtual reading by Juan Matos and Rhina Espaillat earlier this year. That reading was organized by Bedlam Book Cafe.
