MFA Alumna wins Poetry Prize

Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing alumna, Emma Trelles, is the winner of the 4th edition of the Andres Montoya Poetry Poetry Prize. The prize, in conjunction with the Institute for Latino Studies, supports the work of emerging Latino/ poets. Her collection Tropicalia is forthcoming next year from the University of Notre Dame Press.

According to Trelles, Tropicalia is a melodic union between the green insistence of the subtropics and the city. Her poems and prose have appeared in The Best American Poetry anthology, Best of the Net, the Sun Sentinel, Miami Herald and others. All her publications are listed here.
