CALYX has announced a poetry book prize in honor of Sarah Lantz, a Portland poet who died from a brain tumor one month before her first book, Far Beyond Triage, was published by CALYX in 2007. The winner will receive $500 and a CALYX book contract. Submission dates are Sept. 1-30, and there is a $25 reading fee. (Jeff Baker, The Oregonian)
