Rising Phoenix

Published June 12, 2014 Posted by
The Rising Phoenix Contest occurs with each spring issue of The Sheepshead Review. This year, they stepped up the game a little bit and had the students send in a six-piece portfolio for review for the art portion, giving them the opportunity for six pieces to be published, "a larger amount of pieces than is typically presented by one student." The judge this year was Jon Crispin, along with new judges Saul Lemerond (fiction), Sarah Gilbert (poetry), and David McGlynn (nonfiction). Here are the winners:

Art
Laura Wire: Piet's Orange Peel

Fiction
Sarah Chayer: "The Breaking Breath"

Poetry
Cole Heyn: "Rail-Splitters"

Nonfiction
Andrea Reisenauer: "The Solo Journey"
