Event Details

Each year Persea Books commemorates poet-activist Lexi Rudnitsky by holding two book contests sponsored by the Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Project, an organization founded to memorialize Lexi and to promote the type of meaningful poetry in which she so spiritedly believed. 


We are currently accepting submissions to The Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize competition, open to self-identifying women who have yet to publish a full-length book of poems. The winner receives publication, an advance of $1,000.00, and publication of her collection by Persea.

In addition, the winner receives the option of an all-expenses-paid residency at the Civitella Ranieri Center, a renowned artists retreat housed in a fifteenth-century castle in Umbertide, Italy.
