“Fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that will feed your soul.”—New Pages
Writers Tribe Review has posted a strong in-depth review of New Millennium Writings.
We are pleased to announce the 36th New Millennium Awards for Poetry.
Rafaella Del Bourgo, of Berkeley, CA, has won the New Millennium Poetry Prize for “Barking, Pt. Reyes, October 10 2010,” a middle-of-the-night musing on the vocalization of a dog’s worries and, ultimately, the fears and sorrows that keep many of us up at night. Refaella will receive $1,000, a certificate to document her success, and publication both online and in the 2014 issue.
Milla van der Have, of Utrecht, The Netherlands has won the New Millennium Award for Fiction for “Our Lady of Broken Dreams,” a twisting, haze-filled imagining of the relationships that blossom and falter among those who have lost or abandoned everything, and the circumstances that inspire them to reach outside themselves once again.
Alexis Paige, of Randolph, VT, has won the New Millennium Award for Nonfiction for “The Geography of Consolation,” an essay that examines the unique challenges of a writer’s life, the long fallout of an emotional affair, and the inevitable realization that no matter how far or often we roam, the internal journey still lies before us (‘wherever you go, there you are.’)
J. L. Cooper, of Sacramento, CA, has won the New Millennium Award for Short-Short Fiction for “A Summoning of Gifts to Wet Ankles,” a fictional elaboration of the author's experience as an ocean lifeguard. Cooper’s series of vignettes and lyrical language capture truths as universal as our urge to return to the sea.
Each award winner will receive $1,000, a congratulatory certificate, and publication both online and in the 2014 issue. Our talented Honorable Mentions are listed below.
