FREE ENTRY Jacopone da Todi Poetry Book Prize + editor interview – Franciscan University Press, DEADLINE: Aug. 31, 2017

Trish Hopkinson

Franciscan University Press is accepting 48-100 page manuscripts during August 2017 for its Jacopone da Todi Poetry Prize.  “We want work which reflects a disciple’s heart.”

I wondered how and why this poetry prize came to be, so I asked editor David Craig a few questions to find out. See my interview with Craig and a link to their submission guidelines below.


HOPKINSON: How/why was Jacopone da Todi Poetry Prize originally started?

CRAIG: I’ve been doing a highly thought of Christian chapbook series at Franciscan U. of Steubenville for many years, so when they re-started up the press they asked me to do a larger series.  I said I would if we’d ask for poems written “with a disciples’ heart.”  (No sense doing the same old stuff.)  Da Todi was a wonderfully strange Franciscan poet, the best known Franciscan one we could think of.  So that’s what we went with.

Trish Hopkinson

Pøst is a new bi-lingual online journal publishing in both English and French, seeking “new poetic tools to represent contemporary society, which is characterized by globalization (suppression of geographical borders, blending of languages) and plurality (fluidity in any and every form, fragmentation of identities).”

I wondered how and why this journal came to be, so I asked Editor Gabriel Kunst a few questions to find out. See my interview with Kunst and a link to their submission guidelines below.


HOPKINSON: Tell me a little bit about Pøst.

KUNST: Pøst- is an online poetry magazine that publishes texts in English and French. We are based in Montreal, but we want poets from all over the world to send us their best work. We are interested in showcasing established writers as well as emerging talents.
