Poets & Writers presents the Amy Award each year to recognize promising women poets, age 30 and under, living in the New York City metropolitan area or on Long Island. Winners receive a modest honorarium and give a reading in New York City. The award was established in 1995 by Paula Trachtman and Edward Butscher of East Hampton, New York, in memory of Ms. Trachtman's daughter, Amy Rothholz, an actor and poet.
Winners of the 2016 Amy Award are Ebony E. Chinn, Laura Fairgrieve, Sally Wen Mao, and Amy Meng. The winners will present a reading, along with guest poet Leigh Stein, a 2008 Amy Award winner, on Monday, September 12 at the New York Society Library.
