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.
Poets & Writers is pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 Amy Award: Desiree Bailey, Emily Barton, Nabila Lovelace, and Shireen Madon. The winners will read on October 2nd, 2013 at The New York Society Library. This event is open to the public. Email Friends@pw.org for more information.
