The Birmingham Arts Journal sponsors the annual
My Favorite Poem event. The Birmingham Arts Journal also sponsors the Andrew Glaze Poetry Prize in honor of Andrew Glaze (1920-2016), our friend and author who served as Alabama Poet Laureate 2012-2016, and was inducted into the inaugural (2015) Alabama Writers' Hall of Fame. This annual award in the amount of $200 is presented to the poet whose work is deemed most distinguished of the poems published in the Journal the previous year. Each year BAJ Editors select an out-of-state juror who will receive an honorarium in the amount of $100. Juror and winner for 2018 will be announced on the Journal website this April.
