In May 2019, we celebrated the release of Prism Review #21 by having … a launch party at the ULV Chapel! (What we do every year, but this year is the last, as the chapel’s coming down over the summer.) Student staffers read their favorite pieces and talked about working on the issue, and our undergraduate creative writing award prize-winner, Christine Martins, was announced (pictured above). Issue 21 features wonderful work by Anu Kandikuppa, Hannah Warren, Amir Hussain, Lisa Maria Martin, and much more. Read samples here.
Former contributors rocking it!
Bipin Aurora’s (“The Girls in the Warehouse,” Issue 13) collection Notes of a Mediocre Man: Stories of India and America was published in March 2017 (Guernica Editions, Canada). The collection consists of 18 stories. About half of the stories are set in India, half in America, and all deal with small, “mediocre” people–people trying to fit into a world of bigness, applause, success.
Meanwhile, Meagan Cass (“The Night Game,” also Issue 13) recently was awarded the 2017 Katherine Anne Porter prize for her collection ActivAmerica, published fall 2017.
