Leah has won an Honorable Mention (essentially third place, after the grand prize and first runner-up places) in the Bevel Summers Prize in Short Fiction for her short story, “Corner to corner, end to end.” The contest is hosted by Shenandoah, the literary journal of Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, now in its sixty-third year of publication; and Leah’s piece was chosen from over four hundred submissions. The story received a $50 honorarium and will be published in Shenandoah in September.
Leah had a piece, “Alice on your pillow,” published in Big Art Book Issue Two, an annual publication of Scarborough Arts in Ontario, Canada. The issue had the themes of “future; human; digital; animal,” each left to the interpretation of the artist. The book contains over two hundred pages of poems, photography, and artwork by both adults and children, and is available for free viewing on Issuu, or via the Issuu viewer below.
Leah had a piece, “Pillaging with a claw hook,” published in the inaugural issue of the electronic literary journal, East Jasmine Review. The issue features forty-three fantastic pieces of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and reviews, including great authors like John F. Buckley and J. Bradley, and is now available for purchase.
