The 2018 winner of the Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction is Liz Allan for Our Voices, Fierce.

Liz receives a $1000 cash prize, a 12-month online subscription to Books + Publishing, and a collection of books.

According to the media release, judge Margot McGovern commented:

Our Voices, Fierce is a haunting story of young women coming into their power. There is such a strong and compelling narrative voice here that captures the clique’s blossoming fierceness, the gossipy parlance of girlhood and the innocence being cast aside.”

Second place was won by Emily Clements for her story Post and third place went to Kristin Hannaford for the piece Quiquiriqui.

Now in its sixth year, the Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction is held in honour of of Lip’s founding editor, Rachel Funari, who passed away unexpectedly in 2011.

According to the media release, this year:

“Writers were asked to submit previously unpublished and unperformed fiction up to 2000 words that engages with the theme ‘metamorphosis. As a feminist magazine, Lip aims to nurture, and provide a platform for, feminist voices and stories. As such, the competition was open to all women, female-identifying and non-binary writers.”

Congrats Liz Allan, Emily Clements and Kirstin Hannaford!

You’ll soon be able to read all three stories on lipmag.com.
