The James Welch Prize

 Poetry Northwest is launching a fundraising campaign in December 2020 in order to keep our new Welch Prize sustainably fee-free for Native writers over the next five years. Most prizes are pay-to-play: writers pay fees, and those fees then create the cash purse that’s paid out to the winner. Our goal with this 3-week Kickstarter campaign is to raise $10,000 that will go towards paying for the cash purse ($1000 each to two poets every year) for the next five years.

Individual Support


Your contribution to Poetry Northwest supports an independent international poetry magazine with a growing presence in the Northwest community. From supporting the activities of Poetry Northwest writers visiting schools and free distribution of our magazine for educational purposes, to readings and lectures by acclaimed poets such as Robert Pinsky, your support helps us make Poetry Northwest magazine and programs available to the widest possible audience.
