MADRID, SPAIN (October 7, 2022) — The Lorca Latinx Poetry Prize, Letras Latinas, and EcoTheo Collective are thrilled to announce the winner of the 2022 Lorca Latinx Poetry Prize, which supports the publication of an English-Spanish language chapbook by an emerging Latinx poet with no more than one full-length collection in print. The 2022 Prize is awarded to heidi andrea restrepo rhodes for her chapbook ephemeral. Honorable mentions are given to Ayling Zulema Dominguez for Como el Nopal, and Cristian Ramirez Rodriguez for Violet Nerve. The winner and honorable mentions were selected by this year’s guest judge Carmen Giménez and first reader Suzi F. Garcia.

Carmen Giménez states:


“ephemeral is lush and hypnotic, 

a greenhouse of exotic unnamed plants, 

of longing. The language is elemental, physical, wrought, erotic. 

This poet has a rare sonic gift. 

I want love to live in all of us this way.”
