Congratulations to the Winner of the David Hodgin English Award

This year's winner of the David Hodgin English Award is Mikayla Gordon for her short story "Tough Luck."

Here's what the awards committee had to say about her story:

Mikayla Gordon writes prose so eloquent, so sharp it's easy to forget 'Tough Luck' is a frightening, violent story about a family breaking apart in the worst imaginable way. This is fiction of the first rank, brutal, honest, and socially engaged.

This award comes with a $500 scholarship and the publication of the story in the Cold Mountain Review website.

Congratulations, Mikayla!
