The Mark Fischer Poetry Prize is named in the memory of Telluride's much-loved poet, lawyer, skier and raconteur. Mark Fischer was a daring experimenter who combined a polyglot's command of languages with a quirky sense of humor and a passion for obtuse words. In that spirit, prizes are awarded to entries that best exhibit the qualities of originality, novelty, complex meaning, linguistic skill and wit. The wilder the better. All styles and content matter are accepted and will be represented at the reading.For more information please call 970.728.3930, or find Telluride Arts on Facebook, Twitter or at the Stronghouse Studios: 283 South Fir Street in Telluride.
