Good news from former and current poetry MFA students! MFA grad Erika Sanchez won the "Discovery/Boston Review Poetry Contest" and Natalie Scenters-Zapico, who is defending this spring, won an honorable mention in the same contest!
The prize is a pretty prestigious one:
"Now in its sixth decade, the "Discovery" Poetry Contest is designed to attract large audiences to poets who have not yet published a book. For this sixth year, the 92Y Unterberg Poetry Center is proud to partner with Boston Review.
Many winners of this contest have gone on to distinguished careers as poets, among them John Ashbery, Lucille Clifton, Nick Flynn, David St. John and Rosanna Warren."
