Annual Iowa Review Awards

This is the tenth year that Iowa Review has been giving out awards for their contest. The process has changed quite a bit since 2003. "Despite all these changes," says Editor Lynne Nugent, "two things remain the same: the care with which entries are read and the difficulty of choosing just one winner and runner-up in each category." The judges were Timothy Donnelly (poetry), Ron Currie Jr. (fiction), and Meghan Daum (nonfiction). The new issue, features the winners:
