David Campos Wins Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize

David Campos, whose poetry appeared in HUIZACHE’s third issue, has been named winner of the 2014 Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize.

Rhina P. Espaillat, who judged this year’s contest, writes of Campos’ collection:  “But the prize goes to the remarkable Pica, a work whose five parts trace a son’s effort—only partially successful—to fulfill his father’s expectations and—perhaps even more difficult—understand those expectations enough to forgive them.”

You can read one of Campos’ poems, Dusk, right here on our website. And you can follow him on Twitter at @camposwriter.
