This year’s winning pieces are as different as the changing seasons. Little Things, by Dan Page (who won last year’s contest as well), is the story of a man, certain he is being purposefully attacked by…who? Pickling Papaya by Marc Lecard will have you hungry for a gourmet meal before you’ve gotten through the first few lines, with its lush descriptions of ingredients.

Runner-up, John Counts, might make you think twice about heading up-north on vacation with Big Frank, and Poetry runner-up, Cammie Finch, wrote an ode to childhood ties with Crayon.

Come and listen to all the pieces live and in-person on Wednesday, November 18th at 6:30 PM at Arbor Brewing Company
114 E. Washington St. in Ann Arbor
