Iowa Review Tim McGinnis Award Winner
Dinika M. Amaral, winner of the Iowa Review Tim McGinnis Award, has her story featured in the newest issue as well as online, along with a YouTube video of her reading and excerpt from the story. “No Good Deed Unpunished” is described by the editor as “a Hinglish tale of schoolgirl misadventures, comic and otherwise” and as providing “an ideal example of the sort of quirky creativity the McGinnis Award is meant to celebrate.”
At the end of each year, The Iowa Review editor and staff choose, from all the work published in their pages over the previous year, a piece that they think most fits the comic spirit of one-time contributor Tim McGinnis. The award comes with a $1000 prize.
