Naomi Long Madgett Award

Summer 2021

Broadside Lotus Press regrets to announce that Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award will not be presented this year, as, no doubt due to the impact of COVID19, there were very few submissions to the competition, none of which met the NLM Award standards.

We wish to express our deep appreciation to the poets who overcame the stresses of the pandemic to produce and submit manuscripts. We are honored that they shared their creativity with us, and happy to have had the opportunity to read their work.

We look forward to the ebbing of the pandemic, to receiving a bounty of manuscripts to savor after we post the call for submissions in January, and the joy of announcing a winner next year.
