Alyson Hagy wins Devils Kitchen Reading Awards
The editors of the 2011-2012 "Grassroots" literary magazine at Southern Illinois University Carbondale recently announced the winners of the 2011 Devil's Kitchen Reading Awards in Poetry and Prose.
The award winners for the 2011 Devil’s Kitchen Literary Festival are Alyson Hagy for prose, and Jerry Williams for poetry.
The editorial staff of Grassroots, the undergraduate literary journal for SIUC, annually names one prose writer and one poet based on a literary work published by that writer in the preceding year. The winning authors present a public reading and participate in panels at the Devil’s Kitchen Literary Festival, and receive a cash award as an honorarium as well as travel expenses. Submissions are open to authors and publishers. Judges for the award are SIUC graduate students in the creative writing program.
