The Paz Prize for Poetry is presented by The National Poetry Series and The Center @ Miami Dade College. This annual award — named in the spirit of the late Nobel Prize-winning poet Octavio Paz — honors a previously unpublished book of poetry written originally in Spanish (and presented bilingually in both English and Spanish) by an American resident. An open competition is held each May, when an esteemed Spanish-speaking poet selects a winning manuscript.
