Hello to all our beloved Glass Mountaineers! The results are in, writers have been notified, and now we present you the winners of our 2014 Poetry & Prose Contest, judged by Tony Hoagland and Antonya Nelson. Congrats to Tom Boswell for his winning poem, “After reading the first poem in the literary journal, I stop to contemplate life and death,” and to Katie Laitkep for her winning short story, “tunnel Vision.” Congrats also to our honorable mentions, who are also printed in issue 12.3.
Happy New Year to all our gorgeous followers and stalkers! We hope you had as phenomenal a time celebrating the morphing of 2013–>14 as we had culling and cajoling this tidbit of literary lusciousness.

“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!
