Hudson Prize Winner and Finalists Announced
It has been a banner year for The Hudson Prize. We’re a bit late in announcing the winner, but we’ve got a good reason. This year we saw the strongest pool of submissions to date. We had a lot of reading and deliberating to do, and the end result is that we’ve got two new members of the Black Lawrence Press family and three new manuscripts.
Huge congratulations to B.C. Edwards who has won The Hudson Prize with his short story collection The Aversive Clause. Edwards also submitted his poetry collection From the Cyclopedia of Recipes for the prize and we are thrilled to announce that we plan to publish both manuscripts.
B.C. Edwards was not the only Hudson Prize finalist to receive a contract. We are also very pleased to report that we will be publishing Freak Show by Valerie Bandura.
Congratulations are also due to the poets and fiction writers who made it to the finalist round:
Tony Trigilio – White Noise
Ron Tanner – Boom, Like That
Congratulations again! And thanks to all of the 2011 Hudson Prize participants!
