Brickhouse Books is proud to announce that Linda Quinlan has won the Charlene Kushner Wicked Woman Book Prize for her manuscript Chelsea Creek. Judge Rose Solari lauded the manuscript for its “beautifully controlled but deeply felt elegiac tone.” We look forward to publishing this work, and hope to make it available in September.
Other finalists were Rasma Haidri for Blue Like Apples and Alex Stolis for The Knife Thrower’s Wife. Thank you to all who submitted and gave us the chance to read their work.
An award ceremony and reading from Chelsea Creek will take place at the Arts Club of Washington on September 12th.
