Gordon Square Review announces fall prose contest winner; launch party set for Thurs. 11/29 at Happy Dog
Cleveland, OH – In anticipation of its upcoming launch party taking place Thurs. 11/29 from 6:30-9 p.m. at Happy Dog, Gordon Square Review, an online literary magazine published biannually by Literary Cleveland, is pleased to announce the winner of its inaugural Prose Contest.
Taking first place in the contest is “A Rest Season” by Ariel Lewis. Three finalists include "Native Tongue" by Athena Dixon, "The Case of Strauss's Missing Dentures" by Courtney Ebert, and "In Your Dreams" by Jackie Feldman.
Reflecting on Lewis' piece, poet, professor, and contest judge Lucy Biederman remarked, “'A Rest Season’ is a masterly short story. It has an intense clarity of voice and tone, even as it winds through the increasingly strange territory of its plot.”
As the winner of Gordon Square Review’s Prose Contest, Lewis will receive $250, publication in Issue 3 of Gordon Square Review, an invitation to read at the Issue 3 launch party, and a voucher for one free Literary Cleveland class or workshop.
The upcoming launch party will celebrate the recent release of Gordon Square Review’s third issue and offer a platform for Lewis and a number of issue contributors to read their work. Learn more about the launch party.
