The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of
Quiet Diamonds 2020
In the Spring of 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic that essentially closed down the world of poetry readings and presentations, The Orchard Street Press conducted its third annual Poetry Contest. We were heartened by the amazing response we received, with submissions coming in from all across America. From the hundreds of poems sent in, we selected forty-two pieces for recognition: three for cash awards (including this year’s winner of the Malovrh-Fenlon Poetry Prize), seven other Finalists, twelve Semi-Finalists, and twenty Honorable Mentions.
