“Girls” in GQ



“Girls” by Laura Adamczyk, the winner of the 2014 DISQUIET Literary Prize, earned a mention in GQ’s What We’re Reading: “A beautifully written and disquieting fiction with strange, emotional accuracy.”  That’s just what we said! If you haven’t read it yet, now is as good a time as any.

 

 

DISQUIET in South85 Journal



In Portugal, everyone goes naked, on and off the beaches. By this I mean that what I found at Disquiet were people, not writers, not speakers, not editors, not panels. Over two very potent weeks, I got a chance to see my colleagues up close for who they really were and not for their titles. I heard their work, broke Pao de Deus with them, and realized that there is something alarmingly honest about Disquiet’s mission: when the time and place are right, we writers become true to ourselves, both on and off the page. I realized wasn’t just among writers at Disquiet, I was among colleagues in a shared experience of discovery.

DISQUIETer Annie Liontas writes about her experiences in Portugal this summer for South85. Lots more over here.

Oona Patrick writes about Luso-American Scholarships



There’s only two days left to enter both the luso scholarships and the literary prize! For some motivation/inspiration/general wisdom, check out Oona Patrick’s Town Crier piece about Disquiet’s Luso scholarships, the North American Luso writing community, Presence/Presença, Fidalgo Books, and the upcoming AWP conference.

Oona also has an essay on “Portuguese contributions to, and representation in, North American literature” in the upcoming Spring, 2014, issue of The Puritan. Can’t wait!
