Drue Heinz Literature Prize awarded

West Coast author Suzanne Greenberg has won the 2003 Drue Heinz Literature Prize, which honors collections of short stories. Greenberg’s manuscript, “Speed-Walk and Other Stories,” was selected from nearly 300 entries and will be published this fall by the University of Pittsburgh Press, which administers the award.

Greenberg, associate professor of English at California State University in Long Beach, teaches creative writing. She is co-author of “Everyday Creative Writing: Planning for Gold in the Kitchen Sink.” Her fiction, essays and poetry have appeared in numerous publications, including Mississippi Review, the Washington Post Magazine and West Branch. She earned an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Maryland.

Established in 1980 and endowed by the Drue Heinz Trust since 1995, the Drue Heinz Literature Prize recognizes and supports writers of short fiction. Authors who have published a book-length collection of fiction or at least three short stories or novellas are eligible. Manuscripts are judged anonymously by nationally known writers. The prize carries a cash award of $15,000.
