Meeting of the Myths Voting

We have enjoyed all seven finalists in this year’s Meeting of the Myths contest. But we only have one Grand Prize. Help us decide which piece wins this fall’s contest by emailing a ranking of your three favorite pieces to by the end of the day on Saturday, November 29th.

The seven finalists are:

Spring Hill” by Luisa Perkins A Voice Not Crying in the Wilderness” by Jonathon Penny The Trail” by Stephen Carter Where Nothing Lives But Crosses” by Lee Allred Harmony’s Victory” by Hillary Stirling Eyelight” by Mark Penny Daughter of a Boto” by Katherine Cowley

Again: in order to be counted, votes must contain a ranking of the reader’s three favorite pieces and must be emailed to by the end of the day Saturday, November 29th. We also welcome comments and feedback on the contest in vote emails.

For those who are interested, a public discussion of the contest will take place on the Mormon Midrashim blog. We’d love to have you share your thoughts on specific pieces or on the relationships between pieces there.

We also hope you’ll come back in the spring for the Fourth Annual Mormon Lit Blitz. We’re currently planning on a March or April deadline for submissions to that contest, in any genre, with a 1,000 word limit.

-Nicole and James Goldberg, Editors
