It was a wonderful few months of reading for us at Thoughtcrime Press, and the lovely writers above represent only a small portion of the incredible work we received for the Lorien Prize, and continue to receive for the Not My President Anthology. Thank you to everyone who submitted. It was an honor and a privilege to read your manuscripts.
Now, back to work, crafting beautiful books that celebrate our authors, and their unique, exhilarating takes on language and storytelling.
