Due to the need for physical distancing related to COVID-19 this event has been rescheduled to September 19, 2020.
Since 2008, the Worcester County Poetry Association ( http://worcestercountypoetry.org/ ) has held a College Poetry Contest to encourage and recognize the next generation of poets. Finalists are nominated by faculty from participating Worcester County colleges. Submissions are judged based on performance manuscript by judges chosen from the central Massachusetts poetry community.
In 2020 we will be award the Elizabeth Bishop Manuscript Prize and Etheridge Knight Performance Prize, so named to recognize these past poets contributions to Worcester poetry.
