Lorraine M. Lopez a Finalist for PEN/Faulkner Award

I am pleased to announce that Lorraine M. Lopez’s collection Homicide Survivors Picnic and Other Stories (BkMk Press, 2009) was a finalist for the 2010 PEN/Faulkner award. I copyedited the title story when it premiered in Alaska Quarterly Review volume 23, issues 1&2, in 2006. Lopez is an English professor at Vanderbilt University. As a finalist for this prestigious literary award, won by Sherman Alexie for his collection War Dances (Grove Press, 2009), Lopez will receive $5,000 and be honored at a ceremony in May held in Washington DC. Congratulations, Ms. Lopez, and thanks to the AQR editorial staff for the opportunity to help produce the premier print edition of “Homicide Survivors Picnic.”

Kudos

I’d sent my novel out to several agents, and a couple of them recommended I consult a book doctor. Erin was that book doctor, and eventually I signed with one of those agents, who was impressed by how much I’d been able to improve the manuscript.”
