    Dear All,

    I was pleased to hear about the winners and finalists for the Editors’ Prizes in Poetry and Prose. I see that the announcement was in early January. I’m imagining that coronavirus must have set you back!! but do you have a sense when these poems and prose pieces will be published in Meridian?

    Many thanks,

      Dear Doug,

      Thank you for your note! Issue 44 was printed in March, but, yes, coronavirus has caused setbacks: we cannot go into the Meridian office on campus to mail out the issues. While contributors should all have received their copies, the rest of the issues have not been mailed out yet. We are working on a solution for this, and hope to get the issues mailed as soon as possible! We are very proud of Issue 44, and excited to share it.

      Best wishes for your health and safety,
      Emily Lawson

        Thanks once again!! I will poke around your website a bit to see if I can order a copy of issue 44, which has a story from my friend Doris Iarovici.
        Very best wishes for good health in these crazy days!
