MaddocksBrown Award for Contemporary Poetry

In 2017, the MaddocksBrown Foundation established an annual award at the University of Southern California to honor an outstanding graduate student working the field of poetry. The award provides funding for a travel opportunity to inspire an original poem that will be presented to the creative writing faculty, students, and general audience of the English Department’s annual Magill Poetry Series. A faculty committee, which includes the Director of the Ph.D. Track in Literature and Creative Writing, will recommend a graduate candidate to receive the prize.
