Upcoming Guernica Author Diane Bracuk Wins PRISM’s 2015 Creative Non-Fiction Contest

We’re excited to announce that one of our upcoming Guernica authors Diane Bracuk recently won first prize in PRISM’s 2015 Creative Non-Fiction contest! PRISM international is a quarterly magazine out of Vancouver that works to publish the best in contemporary writing and translation from Canada and around the world. PRISM holds several contests including the Creative Non-Fiction contest, a Short Fiction contest, a Poetry contest, and the competition for the Earle Birney Prize for Poetry. The winning submission receives a monetary prize and publication in PRISM magazine.

Diane Bracuk’s “Doughnut Eaters” was described by judge Charles Demers as a piece in which “we’re reminded that sometimes our families withhold from us the very things which we need most; but that, in the right (or wrong) circumstances, this absence can be the source of strength and salvation. But not without cost.”
