AND THE WINNER IS......EMMA TRELLES



Last night at approximately 8:30 PM, final judge Silvia Curbelo took the stage at the end of the One Poem Festival in Denver, CO to announce the winner of the 4th edition of the Andrés Montoya Poetry Poetry Prize. Later that evening, the winner was spotted at Peaks Lounge on the 27th Floor of the Hyatt Regency having drinks with Richard Blanco, Sarah Browning, David Dominguez and others...presumably in celebration mode.
