Winners of 2013 Dan’s Papers Literary Prize for Nonfiction Announced

Dan's Papers Literary Prize Winners 2013

The winners of the 2013 Dan’s Papers Literary Prize for Nonfiction were announced on Monday night at the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton, during a ceremony that included a stirring keynote address from author E.L Doctorow and more literary talent than you can fit on a bookshelf (but that’s why we have our Nooks, right?). From among hundreds of entrants who submitted pieces that showcased the East End of Long Island in a meaningful way, two second-place recipients and a first-place winner accepted their awards onstage in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

First-place honors and a prize of $5000 went to Susan Duff for her piece “Moving Through Water.” The two runners-up prizes of $500 each were awarded to Eve Eliot for “Why East End is an Excellent Place to Die” and Joe Carson for “The Naked Kingdom.” Congratulations to all.
