The Prism Review has announced the winning entries for their annual short story and poetry prizes.
Fiction judge Sean Bernard selected Matthew Di Paoli [pictured] of New York, NY, who wins $250 for “Sweeping Glass.” His stories have appeared in multiple journals, and he currently teaches at Monroe College.
Poetry judge Jen Hofer selected JLSchneider of Ellenville, NY, who wins $250 for “Your Place, Now.” His poems have also appeared in numerous journals, and he is a carpenter and adjunct professor in upstate New York.
Both pieces will be published in Issue 17 of Prism Review, which is still accepting and considering submissions for its forthcoming issue. Past authors in Prism Review include Brandom Som, Elizabeth Robinson, Jessica Hollander, and many more (and Prism pays all contributing authors).
The Prism Review fiction and poetry prize for 2016 will begin accepting submissions in August 2015.
