Though it’s for others to judge, it’s no surprise that the award for the worst piece of prose goes to my good friend: Alex Braude Congratulations Alex, on your first NITH win. You truly are a terrible, terrible writer. Also, as you can no doubt imagine, this was a hard one for the judges. Five in total, each with 6 points to spend, and every submission received at least a point. That’s an unusual result for such a big short list. Make sure you check out our current award, and have yourself a Happy Holiday Season. Coming up in 2014… performance poetry!
