2011 CONTEST WINNERS

The Writer, in collaboration with Gotham Writers' Workshop, is pleased to announce the winners of The Writer 2011 Essay/Memoir Writing Contest.

More than 1,200 writers tackled the challenge of writing an essay or memoir that catches our eye, touches our heart, or tickles our funny bone. Overall, the entries were well-written and enjoyable to read, making it difficult to narrow the field down to 20 finalist submissions. After careful consideration, finalist judge Lee Gutkind, founder and editor of Creative Nonfiction magazine, selected the following winners:

Grand Prize
David Joshua Jennings (Yukon, OK) – "Dear Jack Kerouac"

Second Prize
Janet Jensen (Logan, UT) – “Baking Day”

Third Prize
Caitlin Leffel (New York, NY) – "Learning to Adjust"


Please join us in congratulating these writers!
