This year’s winner was chosen from nearly 100 titles which were read by diverse members of Virginia Commonwealth University’s academic community and a panel of judges. Each of the finalists came from a strong and uniquely talented writer.
We are happy to announce that the winner of this year’s award is Justin Torres for his outstanding debut novel, We the Animals!
Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming festival in November. Until then, check out Mr. Torres’ book and website: http://www.justin-torres.com/
