Snarl is delighted to announce that Final Judge Jason Baltazar has selected Caity Scott’s short story, “like other girls,” as the winner of Snarl’s inaugural prose contest! Congratulations to all the writers who made it to the finalist round. Here is what Jason had to say about Caity’s winning story:
“‘like other girls’ looms much larger than its page count. From the mythic currents woven through its intensely personal high school drama, to the balancing act of infusing its observations about the very real damage our discourses on gender and sexuality can cause with touches of humor and wonder, I was so thoroughly impressed.
Snarl is delighted to announce that Final Judge Diane Glancy has selected Lev Smyth’s poem, “Transgender Blues #1, Summer” as the winner of Snarl’s inaugural poetry contest! Congratulations to all the writers who made it to the finalist round. Here is what Diane had to say about Lev’s winning poem:
“This poem is a journey through the unexpected. It is an inclusion of variables. It moves from the narrative to the associative and back again, keeping the reader in expectation of the next incoming wave. I like the risk-taking of combining subjects. Transgender Blues #1, Summer is a story formed by incongruities. I like the way the poem talks about a subject by talking around it.”
