The Cy Twombly Award for Poetry

The Cy Twombly Award for Poetry is administered by a confidential nomination and selection process. Applications and unsolicited nominations are not accepted.

This annual grant is supported by a multi-year gift from the Cy Twombly Foundation in memory of the artist, who was one of FCA's earliest supporters and who was influenced and inspired by poetry throughout his lifetime. This unrestricted award is made annually through the Grants to Artists program to support a poet. The inaugural award is $40,000 and will be made to the experimental poet Anne Boyer in January 2018.
