2020 Drinking Gourd Winner’s Announcement Postponed

Dear friends,

Here is the latest on the announcement of the winner of the 2020 Drinking Gourd Chapbook Poetry Prize:

As you may know, Northwestern is in the process of transitioning to remote learning.  We are sending our thousands of students home and working on setting up distance classrooms that reach all our students, many of whom are international.  We’ve also had confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our community.  So I’m afraid the announcement will not be posted tomorrow (March 16).  Please be patient and understand that we need to prioritize a lot of different demands.  Our situation is shifting by the hour. – Susanna Gottlieb

We would be announcing as soon as possible.


Thank you.
