Congratulations to the Quarter-Finalists of the 2015 Vine Leaves Vignette Collection Award!
The manuscripts on this list are those which Jessica, Dawn, Krystal, Kristen and Theresa unanimously believed would be an honour to publish through Vine Leaves Press.
Though we do not have any strict judging criteria (these are vignettes, after all, and do not follow standard rules), we looked for originality, sound spelling and grammar, and the ‘it’ factor. The ‘it’ factor basically means you ‘wowed’ us, and that if we had the resources to publish all the manuscripts on this list, we would.
Each Quarter-Finalist will be contacted for their postal address and mailed an award certificate at the end of the entire judging period (April 30).
Without further ado, here are the Quarter-Finalists in no particular order:
Mosaic, by Aimy Tien
You. I. Us., by Annalisa Crawford
Enter, by Charles Hansmann
It’s Strange Here, by JL Schneider
Ramshackle Houses, by Kathy Boles-Turner
The Intercostal Space, by Kathy Stevenson
The Crimes of Clara Turlington, by Meg Johnson
The Geometry of Pleasure, by Natalia Andrievskikh
Postcards From Here, by Penny Guisinger
P E C F D, by Raul Palma
