HPMEC Announces Short Fiction Contest Winner
5/3/2018
PIGGOTT – Rebecca Prather, an English major at Arkansas State University, is the winner of the fifth annual short fiction contest, the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center has announced. She was selected for her story, “Mr. Cameron’s Urn.” Of the story, the contest judge said, “This writer has created characters with complexly developed emotions. Both the son tentatively grieving for his abusive father and the friend trying to comfort him are realized with skill.” Prather is a junior from Marked Tree and transferred to A-State after spending her freshman year at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. This is her first short fiction contest. Prather’s work was selected from a field of submissions from undergraduate students at public and private institutions in the state of Arkansas. The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center is an Arkansas State University Heritage Site located in Piggott.
