Anne Sanow won the Drue Heinz Literature Prize for her short story collection Triple Time, which will be published in September. There were 300 works submitted. Ann Patchett, who works diligently to save the short story (and was kind enough to include two One Story stories when she edited the Best American Short Stories), judged the contest.
The Drue Heinz Literature Prize recognizes and supports writers of short fiction and makes their work available to readers around the world. The award is open to writers who have published a book-length collection of fiction or at least three short stories or novellas in commercial magazines or literary journals.
The prize carries a cash award of $15,000 and publication by the University of Pittsburgh Press under its standard contract.
