Hidden River Arts is extremely pleased to announce Tree Riesener as the winner of the first annual Eludia Award, for a first book-length unpublished novel or collection of stories. The prize is open to women writers age 40 and older, who do not yet have a book-length publication of fiction. The winning manuscript will be published by our imprint, Sowilo Press, and our author will receive $1000 plus ten copies of the published book. Because of the wonderful response and exceptional quality of work submitted, we also have an extensive list of semi-finalists and finalists for the competition. Congratulations to all our writers. The talent and brilliance of all of those who have shared their work with us is simply overwhelming.
