Announcing Our 2015 1/2K Prize Winner!

Judge Kim Chinquee has selected “House” by Nghiem Tran as the winner of Indiana Review’s 2015 1/2K Prize! “House” will appear in our Summer 2016 Issue. We received a near-record number of contest submissions, and the competition was fierce. Thank you to everyone who submitted their work for consideration and made this year’s Prize possible.

2015 Indiana Review 1/2K Prize Winner:

“House”

Nghiem Tran

Kim Chinquee says this about the winning piece: “The personification of Grief in “House” is very affecting. Grief (as character) shows its enormity: first appearing while making something as ordinary, yet odd, as a grilled cheese sandwich. I also love the humor, the narrator’s criticisms of Grief’s inability to properly make something so simple. The narrator’s fear of Grief is very genuine, so true. And Grief’s presence: so powerful, so monstrous, hugging the childhood teddy bear, even stealing the blankets. Very moving piece.

Runners-Up:

“Draw” by Mary Peelen

“Answers” by Eric Tran

“Decoy” by Felicia Zamora

Finalists:

“The Lizard King” by Chris Childers

“Snow White and the Kiss Deferred” by Tobias Lavon

“Wanted: Internet Rock Star” by Karen Elterman

“The Bank” by Brenda Peynado

“My Debt Collector” by Brenda Peynado

“They Don’t Know What to Do With Her” by N. Michelle AuBuchon
