2013 National Program Directors’ prize for Undergraduate Literary Magazines

“Congratulations! Bonnie Culver of Wilkes University, our judge, has declared Glass Mountain as the winner of the 2013 National Program Directors’ prize for Undergraduate Literary Magazines in the content category.

Ms. Culver has this to say about the magazine: ‘Edgy, funny, smart, and top shelf fiction and poetry.'”

That’s right! Glass Mountain wins the director’s prize from AWP for undergrad lit mags. That’s $500 for the magazine and a whole heap of “awesome job” for our staff, and all of our contributors cross the nation.  Good job folks!
