(AP) A New Mexico-based poet has received a $50,000 prize for gifted writers deserving of greater attention.


Poets & Writers Inc. announced Wednesday that Sante Fe resident Arthur Sze (zee) has won the Jackson Poetry Prize.


Sze's eight books include "The Ginkgo Light" and "The Redshifting Web." A new collection called "Compass Rose" is scheduled for next year.


Previous winners of the Jackson prize include Elizabeth Alexander, who read a poem at President Barack Obama's first inaugural.


Poets & Writers is a nonprofit organization founded in 1970. It sponsors readings and workshops and publishes a bimonthly magazine.


The Jackson Poetry Prize was established in 2006 and is named for the family of philanthropists John and Susan Jackson.
