Another Win for the Department!

Un zompopo peculiar, Antigua’s novel, received the XIII Letras de Ultramar Literary Prize, in the children’s category. Letras de Ultramar is a literary contest sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of the Dominican Republic and organized by the Dominican Commissioner of Culture in the USA. The contest is aimed at recognizing Dominican writers living and writing abroad. This year’s prize was in Essay, Theater and Children’s Literature.

Un zompopo peculiar is an homage to Robert L. Frost. This is the second time Antigua has won this prize, the first time was in 2015 with her children’s novel titled Elementos!

 

¡Enhorabuena!
