Hello Undergraduate Writers,
It’s been a while so there’s a lot to get to.
First, there was a delay in the publication process for last year’s issue, so we have decided to release a special double issue of The Allgheny Review this academic year that will include everything accepted from last year’s submissions, as well as some additional writing and interviews with writers Jim May and Angela Palm.
Second, we’d like to announce last year’s prizewinners.
Poetry: Anna Goodsen, “Anacuisis”
Prose: Rachel Krumenacker, “The High Place Phenomenon”
The judges were Nikole Brown and Jessica Jacobs in poetry and Catherine Chung for prose. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone who submitted.
Finally, submissions for next year’s volume ARE NOW OPEN. Please click on the Submissions tab above.
