2019 1/2 K Winner
“Coal Hollow Fire, UT” by Emily Lawson
“The writer really impressed me with how much was built–nostalgia, regret, danger, intimacy–into this short piece that utilized sparse, beautiful language. There was such a contrast in the icy, distant language that they used while describing something so hot, so dangerous that it made me read it several times.” — Megan Giddings
“Autopsy,” “Between Hospital Visiting Hours,” and “I Drop a White Pill in My Sink,” by A.D. Lauren-Abunassar
“How to Make Breakfast” by John Paul Martinez
“hymns to the word” by Carrie Jenkins
“Touch” by Eric Burger
Stay tuned for more prize and submission opportunities.
