Passages North #37 showcases the winners of their 2015 contests:
2015 Thomas Hrushka Memorial Nonfiction Prize
Judge: Steven Church
Winner: Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson, “On Nostalgia”
2015 Elinor Benedict Poetry Prize
Judge: Lynn Emanuel
Winner: Lindsay Means, “Antikythera”
Honorable Mention: K.T. Landon, “The Dead Go Bowling”
Included with the purchase of this issue is a separate book: The Deathmask of El Gaucho by Dan Mancilla, winner of the Little Presque Books Novella Contest. Little Presque was founded and is run by former Passages North managing editor, Timston Johnston.
And an added bonus: two brand new flash nonfiction pieces by Ander Monson from his Letters to a Future Lover series are tucked in the journal, because, as Monsoon said, they were "written and designed to be read unbound and looseleaf, and tucked into books, as the reader desires."
