From 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.
