Congratulations to International Literary Award and Luso-American Scholarship winners!



We’re pleased to announce that Catriona Wright of Toronto, Ontario is the winner of the third annual Dzanc Books / Guernica International Literary Award for her short story “Veils”! It was a hard call this year, with even more entries than last year of an extremely high caliber.

In addition, four North American writers of Luso descent were awarded full scholarships to attend DISQUIET 2013 through a partnership with the Luso-American Development Foundation, with partial scholarships awarded to finalists and semi-finalists. The 2013 scholarship winners are:

  • Chris Arnold (fiction)
  • Marie Carvalho (poetry)
  • Anne-Marie Ross (nonfiction)
  • Amy Souza (fiction)

Congratulations to all winners and finalists!
