Graywolf Announces Recipient of Nonfiction Prize

Lars Horn has won this year’s Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize for their manuscript, Voice of the Fish. According to a release issued by the press, Horn’s collection of essays employs water and aquatic life forms as a starting point to reflect upon the human body and gender, sexuality, transmasculinity, and illness, as well as faith, the arts, and whiteness.

Graywolf Press editors disclosed that more than 600 manuscripts were submitted for consideration for this prize, which is given to the work of an emerging author who has published no more than two books previously. When published by Graywolf, Voice of the Fish will mark Horn’s debut as an author.
