Lit Blitz Voting Instructions

We have loved sharing the work of all thirteen finalists.

But we only have one Grand Prize.

The winner of the Mormon Lit Blitz will be selected by audience vote. Voters must first read (or hear, in the case of voters who are not yet literate) at least five of the Mormon Lit Blitz finalists and then rank their top five. These five ranked votes should then be emailed to with VOTE in the subject line. (One vote per person please, even if you have multiple email accounts.)

First place votes will be counted as five points, second as fourth, and so on. The piece with the most points by the end of March 15th will win.

Again, in order to be valid, votes must:

1) Be sent to with VOTE in the subject line.

2) Include five pieces ranked from 1st favorite through 5th favorite. Listing votes either by title or by author is acceptable.

Feel free to include any other feedback you have on the Mormon Lit Blitz in the body of the email below your vote list.

As a reminder, the finalists are Marilyn Nielson’s “In Bulk,” Wm Morris’s “The Elder Who Wouldn’t Stop,” Jeanna Mason Stay’s “No Substitute for Chocolate,” Emily Harris Adams’  “Second Coming,” Sandra Tayler’s “The Road Not Taken,” Merrijane Rice’s “Stillborn,” Kathryn Soper’s “Oil of Gladness,” Emily Debenham’s “The Shoe App,” Deja Earley’s “Cada Regalo Perfecto,” Kerry Spencer’s “The Gloaming,” Jonathon Penny’s “Babel,” Jeanine Bee’s “The Hearts of the Fathers,” and Marianne Hales Harding’s “Red Rock.”
