Narrative Prize Winner: Maude Newton

The 2009 Narrative Prize winner is Maud Newton for her story “When the Flock Changed”: “My mother was a preacher until the cops shut her down. Well, okay, she kept at it halfheartedly in our living room for a while, but the fire had wiped out not just her warehouse church, but her passion, her commitment, and deep down, her belief. Worse, her flock knew it and was slipping away.”

The $4,000 Narrative Prize is awarded annually for the best short story, novel excerpt, poem, or work of literary nonfiction published by a new or emerging writer in Narrative.
