Wednesday night was the bi-annual Prose Slam, held at The Pizza Shoppe Collective in Benson (yum!) and hosted by Writer’s Workshop faculty Lisa Sandlin and Sarah Mason. Judges were Writer’s Workshop graduates. We had a great turnout, and 4 winners who will be published in the upcoming premier issue of 13th Floor Magazine! Everyone did an amazing job reading, and I didn’t envy the judges having to choose between them all to select a winner. Here are the official results:
4th Place: Jennifer Hickey
3rd Place: Chyna Jedlicka
2nd Place: Andy Oermon
1st Place: Alexandria Hodge
We will also be publishing some of the winning pieces here on 13thfloormagazine.com, so be sure to watch throughout the summer. The Prose Slam is held once a semester in the spring and fall, and offers a cash prize to the top 3 winners. The first place winner also gets their picture in a place of honor in the Writer’s Workshop department. Enter this fall and you, too, could be a winning slammer!
