Three-Time Finalist in the Mormon Lit Blitz


Since its founding in 2012, the Mormon Lit Blitz has been a gathering place for writers and readers interested in Latter-day Saint experience. The rules are simple: each year, writers get no more than 1,000 words to create a very short story, essay, poem, or other text that resonates with Latter-day Saint audiences in some way. Judges choose finalists that showcase (and sometimes stretch) the possibilities of Mormon literature. Audiences cast votes to crown a winner. Now, for the first time, seventy-seven finalists from the contest’s first five years are gathered into a single collection, brimming with angry sunbeams, android apostles, and apocalypses. At turns raw and refined, miraculous and mundane, witty and wise, these pieces are the perfect sampler plate for anyone interested in Mormon literature.
