Hearty congratulations to Hananah Zaheer, Bruce Bond, and Michael Lavers, the winners of MQR’s 2017 literary prizes.
We’re happy to announce Ruchama King Feuerman, Eric Rivera, and John Rybicki as the winners of MQR’s 2016 Literary Prizes.
Our friends at The Puritan asked if we’d be willing to let our readers know about their upcoming writing contest, The Thomas Morton Memorial Prize in Literary Excellence. We said yes! Entry deadline has been extended to October 10, 2016.
MQR has awarded this year’s trio of literary prizes: The Lawrence Foundation Prize goes to Cody Peace Adams, the Laurence Goldstein Prize to Benjamin Busch, and the Page Clayton Prize for Emerging Poets to Anne Barngrover.
A taut, tension-filled story of a man helping the woman he loves flee her abusive husband, a poem whose technical expertise and emotional surefootedness exemplify the mature work of a poet writing at the height of his powers, and a couple of lively poems exuding the energy and sensibility of a new generation have won the trio of literary prizes awarded each year by MQR.
