The big moment has finally arrived. Impact will release tomorrow, and we’re counting down the winners!
First place this year goes to Brenda Noiseux, for the story “You Can’t Rush the Kimchi:”
“HOW WE RECOVER memory constitutes the heart of this beautiful, lyrical story. Our judges found a poignancy in the search for something from a missing childhood and the incredible relief of recovering that kind of memory. The author’s depiction of this recovery is warm, sensory-laden and striking, and the inclusion of characters of color and the connection between the queer characters and family made this story a stand-out.”
Congrats, Brenda – well deserved!
