Fiddlehead Contributors, Clea Young and Michelle Butler Hallett, Enjoy Success

Clea Young
Congratulations to Clea Young, who is one of the finalists for this year's Journey Prize! Clea's story, "Juvenile," appeared in last year's Summer Fiction issue, no. 256.

The Journey Prize anthology, which also features "Downturn" by Fiddlehead contributor Jeremy Lanaway, is now available in book stores and online. The two other finalists are Tyler Keevil (The New Orphic Review) and Lori McNulty (Descant). The winner will be announced on November 4. Good luck Clea!

Another anthology just released featuring a Fiddlehead contributor is the Best American Mystery Stories 2014. Michelle Butler Hallett's story "Bush-Hammer Finish," which appeared in last fall's no. 257, is featured along with works by Annie Proulx, Joseph Heller, and Russell Banks. Humber College has a great story on their website.
