MacQueen’s Quinterly: Knock-your-socks-off Art and Literature
Issue 1: January 2020
Nonfiction: 182 words
By Clare MacQueen

Editor’s Choice Award: Issue 1


The ECA for MacQ’s debut issue was selected from a list of ten finalists, which in turn were chosen from more than a hundred works that appeared in the issue. Because I kept returning to this poem and this painting—both of which resonated exquisitely for me—I was unable to choose between them. Instead, I declared a tie:

Waking Alone After Drinking Too Much Wine in Umbria [poem after Li Po] by Rick Mulkey

Reclining Nude on Sofa: Tribute to Amedeo Modigliani [mixed-media, life-size figurative painting] by J.R. Lancaster

And here are the other eight finalist faves, listed in alpha order by author’s last name:

On the Beach With Linda [flash fiction] by Olivia Dalessandro

Hormonal [micro-fiction] by Kika Dorsey

Another Bad Year for Florida Man [poem] by Gary Glauber

Figment [prose poem, ekphrastic] by Lorette C. Luzajic

It’s a Hard Art, Living [lyric memoir] by Pamela Johnson Parker

The Magic Boomerang [lineated haibun] by Lew Watts

Post inferno [haibun, climate crisis] by Tony Steven Williams

Untitled (2019) [prose poem, climate crisis] by Paul-Victor Winters
