We are proud to announce that Kirstin Smith is the winner of the 2018 MU Undergraduate Juried Writing competition!
Our judges, Jordi Alonso and Anna Wehrwein, chose Kirstin’s intense work of flash fiction, “Milk Carton Faces.”
Kirstin Smith is a sophomore at the University of Missouri, majoring in Biology and minoring in Anthropology. Her writing career began at a young age with successes such as being published in the Young Authors chronicle with many other aspiring writers as a fifth grader. From there, she devoted many hours to writing hundreds of fan stories of the DC universe, Batman specifically, and amassed nearly 500 works by her junior year of high school. She continues writing in her free time to cope with depression and aims to one day help others with her words.
We’re eagerly awaiting a proof of the paperback LED Anthology, which means it’s time for you to place an order. If you pre-order the anthology, we’ll ship your copy with some sweet letterpress ephemera, hot off the press. Don’t wait though, once we approve the proof and our books ship, any purchase will just be a regular ol’ order (still a pretty swell deal at only $6.00).
You’re probably wondering where you can place your order. Allow us to introduce our new website! Partial Press is the umbrella organization behind LED (you may have noticed it on our about page) and now that LED is moving on to this exciting new phase, we decided it was time to launch Partial Press and begin rolling out other exciting publishing projects. Visit the Catalog Page to ore-order the LED Anthology and be sure to check out our other publications for sale.
LED news will continue to be posted here with our archive, but you’ll want to check Partial Press for other announcements and opportunities in the realm of experimental and small press publishing. The Partial Press Facebook page (formerly our LED page) will continue to feature LED content. You can also follow Partial Press on Tumblr if you’re into that.
