Award: Full scholarship
The 2020 recipient of the 2020 Patricia Bibby Memorial Scholarship will receive a full scholarship to attend the Writing, Poetry & Writers Week at Idyllwild Arts, from July 6-10, 2020. Idyllwild Arts’ 205-acre campus is located in the beautiful mountain community of Idyllwild, California, nestled near the top of the San Jacinto Mountains. The recipient will attend a five-day immersive poetry workshop — led by either poet Diane Seuss or poet Victoria Change. (The scholarship recipient will have a choice of which poetry workshop to attend.) The faculty also includes poet Ed Skoog, and will also feature lectures and/or evening readings by guest poets Carl Phillips and Tommy “Teebs” Pico, among other writers. The competition is open to all English-language poets residing in the United States who have not previously published a full-length book or chapbook.
