The Sohela Chapbook Prize is named after the poet Sohela Miriam who dedicated most of her adult life to writing poems on postcards and mailing them to family and friends from around the world. After her passing at just 26, her family found a box with over one-hundred poem-postcards addressed to herself. This prize is named after her in the spirit of all people and their unknown creative genius.
