The Creative Nonfiction Collective Society and The Humber Literary Review are pleased to announce the winner for this year’s creative nonfiction contest. Congratulations to Becky Blake!

Her submission (Ingenue) is “an account of a young actress’s coming to consciousness as she performs her first professional role. It’s a quietly serious story told in a funny, observant voice, beautifully paced, told in scenes and dialogue and details and with a clear POV that all bring it off the page,” according to our contest judge, journalist Ian Brown.

The contest prize includes a payment of $750 and publication in The Humber Literary Review.
