2020 Award Winner
Holy Magic by Priscilla Long

Judge Carmen Germain selected Holy Magic by Priscila Long of Seattle, WA as winner, from a field of 35 entries.

Here's what the judge had to say:"Holy Magic is rich in fresh imagery, is intelligent, and is wide-ranging while at the same time thematically linked with the meditations and focus on color, which I felt gave the manuscript unity. I also saw and appreciated forays into forms such as sestina and (maybe) nonce forms; this showed me a poet who was open to other approaches. The work is also rich in word-music. It is the manuscript that kept me reading and re-reading: I found `make it new` there, and liked the life and energy in the poems."
