2012 Obsidian Prize for Nonfiction
February 1, 2012 § 1 Comment
Two more weeks to enter work for High Desert Journal’s 2012 Obsidian Prize for Nonfiction, with a $1000 prize, Judged by William Kittredge.
From the website:
High Desert Journal aims to explore the realm described by poet Jarold Ramsey: “I believe in an ecology of story, memory and imagination as much as an ecology of land.” As an organization focused on a specific place, we at High Desert Journal have discovered that a deep hunger of readers, writers, and artists exists for place-based arts and literature. We believe every place has an ecology of story, memory, and imagination that inspires us, connects us to one another and to a place. We want to offer the best of this “ecology” through the Obsidian Prize.
