2012 Irreantum Contest Winners

The Association for Mormon Letters and Irreantum magazine are pleased to announce the winners of our 2012 literary contests. This year we received 72 fiction entries, 41 personal essay entries, and 46 poetry collection entries. Entries were judged blind, and our contest committee had a number of strong submissions from which to choose. We are grateful to the Eugene England foundation for providing funding for our fiction and personal essay contests, and to Mary Ann Taylor for providing funding for our poetry contest. These contests would not be possible without their support, as well as the time and thoughtful consideration offered by Irreantum's editorial staff and literary contest committee. Thank you to all who submitted, and congratulations to this year's winners.
