Huizache is now the administer of the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize. The Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize supports the publication of a first full-length book of poems by a Latinx poet residing in the United States.

The winning poet will receive $1000 from the Huizache Literary Initiative and a contract from University of Nevada Press as part of its New Oeste Series. Upon publication of the winning book, the Huizache Literary Initiative will extend an invitation to both the winner and the judge to give a joint reading at UC Davis. In addition, Letras Latinas will extend an invitation to the winner to present their work at the University of Notre Dame.

The Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize is awarded every other year. There is no entry fee.

Submissions will open November 1, 2023 and will close on February 16, 2024.

Judge: Juan Felipe Herrera
