CLAREMONT, Calif. (AP) A runner-up for poetry's 2010 Pulitzer Prize is this year's winner of Claremont Graduate University's $100,000 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award.

University officials announced Wednesday that Angie Estes of Urbana, Illinois, was honored for her book "Enchantee." She was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2010 for her previous book, "Tryst."

The Tufts prize, awarded annually to a mid-career poet, is one of the genre's richest and most prestigious honors.

Claremont also honored Brandon Som of Los Angeles with its $10,000 Kate Tufts Discovery Award, presented to a poet who shows great promise.

Som was cited for his first book, "The Tribute Horse."

Estes, who has published five books, teaches at Ohio's Ashland University.

The poets will receive their awards at a campus ceremony on April 16.
