2016 Profane Nonfiction Contest Winner

kat mooreThe 2016 Profane Nonfiction Prize winner is “The End of the World" by Kat Moore. She will receive the $1,000 honorarium and publication in the Winter 2017 Issue 3.

Judge Dinty W. Moore [no relation] comments on the winning work: "'The End of the World' is a powerful, intricate, and compelling memoir essay. While other writers might have sensationalized the lurid aspects of heroin use and addiction, Kat Moore uses intimate detail and a matter-of-fact narrative to show just how quotidian the day-to-day life of a junkie can be. Superb writing and voice."

Contest Finalists: "Full Count" by Devin Kelly; "This is a Test of the Emergency System" by Jill Kolongowski; "Newmom" by Molly Pascal; "Pruritus" by JD Schraffenberger.

Profane is a winter annual print and audio journal of poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction. Every published poem and piece of prose is recorded in the author's own voice.
