Meridian Contributor Spotlight – Summer 2016

Meridian contributors are a hardworking and talented bunch. Here’s a rundown of the latest news about our contributors. If we’ve missed anything (it’s tough to keep up with such overachieving writers, you know), please let us know. We’d be happy to edit this post to include anything we may have overlooked.

Wendy Rawlings (Meridian 36) has an essay in the latest issue of the Colorado Review, ‘Portrait of a Family, Crooked & Straight.’

Samantha Duncan (Meridian 37) is a second runner up in the Split Lip Press Chapbook contest.

Analicia Sotelo (Meridian 37 and Editors’ Prize in Poetry runner up) has poetry in The New Yorker, and also up on The Collagist.

And though we’re a little late to the party on this one, we just have to give a shout out to Aaron Coleman‘s (Meridan 37) poem ‘These Miles’, in the Boston Review.

Congratulations to all of our writers on their successes – check back here for more soon.

The Editors.
