A prize of $2,000 and bilingual publication by Bordighera Press is given annually for a poetry collection written in English to be translated into Italian. The prize is evenly divided between the poet, who must be a U.S. citizen of Italian descent, and the translator, who need not be a U.S. citizen. The poet may translate his or her own work. Submit two copies of 10 pages of poetry in English or in both English and Italian by May 31. There is no entry fee. Send an SASE, e-mail, or visit the website for complete guidelines.
