Our thanks go out to our judges, whose careful and clear readings of our finalists helped make our contest such a success. We would also like to extend a special thanks to everyone who submitted to our 2012-2013 contests; as usual, the quality of submissions was excellent, and everyone at ALR enjoyed the opportunity to see such stellar work.
The winning pieces will receive $1000 each, and, along with an array of new and interesting writing from around the globe, will appear in our upcoming double-issue, which will be out shortly.
