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:
Emily Hunt: "Figure the Color of the Wave She Watched, "As Long as Relief," "View from a Regular Fantasy," "Another Time Stopped," "Last Night of the Year We Remembered Our Desires"
Kyle Minor: "The Principle of the Fragility of Good Things"
Emily G. Martin
Bernadette Esposito: "The Principle of the Fragility of Good Things"
