29 October 2012

Washington, DC October 17, 2012 – Valhalla Press is pleased to announce all the winners of the first Valhalla Press Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction Contest. The contest sought out the best in original short literary fiction and nonfiction work written in English.

We previously announced that the First Prize winner in the Valhalla Press Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction Writing Contest is Jan English Leary for her story, Mother’s Helper, a classic short story reminiscent of John Updike. Jan received $500 and her e-reader of choice, the Nook ST with Glolight.

We also previously announced that Mary Beth Ellis won second prize for her creative nonfiction piece, People Who Choose to Run, written in the New Journalism tradition of Tom Wolfe. Mary selected a Nook Color for her prize, which will be sent as soon as the new version is available.

We are now pleased to announce our list of Honorable Mention winners. Each of these pieces will appear in the inaugural issue of Ragnarok, Valhalla Press’ e-lit journal, which will be published on November 1, 2012. The Honorable Mention winners also received payment of $25 for their work. The winners are:

Loss by Jamie Derkenne

Hip, Hip Harrumph! by Mark Levine

The Atrocities of War by Jennifer Peckinpaugh

Canadian Geese in Phoenix by Davey Jones

The Leaving of Things by Jaidev Antani

The judges will provide individual feedback to each contest entrant over the next few weeks. We apologize for the brief delay in feedback – we are hard at work. Valhalla Press would like to thank all entrants for their help in making our inaugural writing contest a success.
