We at The Aletheia commend Darlene Campos, Bryan Washington, and Melissa Dziedzic for winning awards from the University of Houston’s English department. Campos has won the 2013 Sylvan N. Karchmer Fiction Prize, Washington the 2013 Bryan Lawrence Award in Fiction, and Dziedzic the 2013 Bryan Lawrence Award in Nonfiction.
We were honored to publish stories from both Campos and Washington in our Fall 2012 issue, which you can read through our Chapbook Archive above. We were equally honored to have Dziedzic read her personal essay “Hair” — the essay, in fact, that won her the Lawrence Award — at our Avant Garden event earlier this month. Jobs well done, everyone!
