Rogelio Sinan Prizes

Professor Pedro Rivera, left, won distinctions and a $10,000 prize for a lifetime of literary achievement at the 2008 Rogelio Sinan Awards. The prizes, given every two years by the Universidad Tecnologico de Panama, honor writers in various categories in Panama and the Central American countries.

Also honored this year, taking the prize for poetry, was another Panamanian, 38-year-old Porfirio Salazar. So how does one go about making a living writing poetry here in Panama? Well, Salazar actually supports himself by working as a rural judge in Cocle province.
