A Big Prize for Midge Goldberg

The 2016 Nemerov Sonnet Award winner is Midge Goldberg for “Tennis Pactice Against the Garage Door.” Because the Nemerov Award is a prestigious prize, many of the today’s finest poets enter the competition. Among the finalists were two other poets who’ll read for us at the Newburyport Literary Festival next spring, Robert Mezey and Anton Yakovlev.

Midge is truly on a roll. Her second full-length collection of poetry, Snowman’s Codewas chosen as the 2016 New Hampshire Literary Awards Reader’s Choice for Outstanding Book of Poetry.
