Irreantum Fiction Contest Winners

For those who haven’t seen this news:

The Association for Mormon Letters is pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 Irreantum fiction contest. A committee of judges considered 91 entries and awarded three cash prizes and two honorable mentions.

  • First place ($250): “Bing” by Ryan Shoemaker of Burbank, California
  • Second place ($175): “Joseph Smith’s Dreams” by James Goldberg of Pleasant
    Grove, Utah
  • Third place ($100): “Aunt Charlotte’s Secrets” by Karen Rosenbaum of
    Kensington, California

Honorable Mention: “The Iron Door” by Mark Brown of Tonica, Illinois, and

Next year’s fiction contest will be announced in early 2011. With no
official connection to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the
Irreantum fiction contest is supported by the Utah Arts Council, with
funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts,
which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

Congratulations to all the winners!

  1. Thanks for posting this, Kent. I have read 17 Facts and it’s very good — and in this same vein of parabolic/short prose poem discourse that several us have been working lately.
