Congratulations to the winner of our first ever experimental prose contest, Lesley Wheeler! Her photo-essay “A Little Hell of its Own” will be published online and in print in issue 5.1. Selected by judge Barbara Henning, this piece weaves images from Coney Island, narratives of abandoned babies, and the power of natural disasters. Wheeler receives a $50 prize along with publication.
Barbara also selected two finalists:
Katie Jean Shinkle’s “The Destroyer of Worlds”
Stephanie K. Hopkins’ “What Happened in Philly”
Congratulations to Lesley, Katie Jean, and Stephanie!
