We’re on the 2013 Stranger Genius Award’s shortlist! Huzzah! (Emphasis on ‘short’).
Since 2003, the Stranger has awarded a $5,000, no-strings-attached grant to five artists in five disciplines. Past winners of the Genius Award in Literature include small press writers and artists Matt Briggs, John Olson, Rebecca Brown, Sherman Alexie, Stacey Levine, Jim Woodring and Ellen Forney. We’re honored to have the chance to join such illustrious company.
The full list of nominations for the 2013 Genius Awards will be released in the Summer issue of A&P, the Stranger’s arts quarterly, which is due out in June. Winners for the Genius Awards will be announced at an event in September.
