David Zwirner Books and 826NYC are pleased to announce its first annual student literary prize awarded to Isiah Tamar, a 17-year-old high school senior from Coney Island. Isiah’s poem, ‘In Coney,’ was selected from a pool of entries submitted from schools across all five boroughs.

Isiah will receive a summer stipend to work on a portfolio of writing and participate in a summer publishing program. On Thursday, July 20, David Zwirner Books hosted a poetry reading for Isiah.
