We could not be more thrilled to announce the winner, runner-up and finalists of the 2013 Indiana Review 1/2K Prize! We received hundreds of fine submissions from all over the country, which were read and reviewed anonymously. The final winner was selected by contest judge Dinty W. Moore.
2013 Indiana Review 1/2 K Prize Winner
“Wal-Mart Parking Lot”
“At Least Ourselves”
We asked 1/2K judge Dinty W. Moore to say a few words about Seuss’s winning story “Wal-Mart Parking Lot.” Moore writes:
“Wal-Mart Parking Lot” offers readers an unexpected vision of American culture filtered through consumer culture and 20th century art history. I love the energy and delicious oddness of the flash essay. Concise and surprising.
Congratulations to Seuss and runner-up Caitlin Scarano on your excellent work! Many thanks to the hundreds of writers who submitted to make the 1/2K contest one of our most successful yet. As always, we appreciate your innovative and provocative work!
