The time has come for us to announce the winners, chosen by heavy-weight judge Cristina Eisenberg, of our 2014 Notes from the Field contest (drumroll, please):
Our first prize winner is Susannah Clark’s magnificent essay “House Blend,” delving into the stories of the young men behind 2013’s horrific Boston Marathon bombing.
And our runner-up is the essay “Usciolu” by Suzanne Menghraj, an excellent piece of travel writing that tells of the author’s experience on the Mediterranean island of Corsica.
I would also like to celebrate everyone who submitted. We had nearly 100 submissions, and the staff found much enjoyment reading through them. Of course, I must also thank our judge Cristina Eisenberg and her eagle eye for good material.
Please look to see our winner and runner-up published in our up-coming publication cycle in the spring of 2015.
