Members produce both nonfiction and fiction, including novels, short stories, poetry, plays, speeches, feature articles, and essays. This year for the first time, the MWA partnered with Apprentice House to publish the winners of the 2014-2015 contest.
The MWA received over two hundred submissions for the novel and short works categories combined. We are proud to present this anthology of winners from the short works submissions. This collection is a synergy of voices from Maryland and beyond, deftly undertaking themes such as humanity and loss with elegance and intensity.
"This collection traverses the Mason-Dixon line and the Potomac. The stories and poems cross boundaries of geography and the human condition. Maryland, considered 'America in Miniature,' is a diverse state and this anthology, skillfully crafted, is one of its prizes."
-Jason Tinney, author of Ripple Meets the Deep, winner of Baltimore Magazine's Best Book of 2015
