Mark Krieger of West Bend, Wisconsin, has been selected as winner of the sixth annual Danahy Fiction Prize by the editors of Tampa Review. He will receive a cash award of $1,000 and his winning short story, "Scar," will be published in Tampa Review 43/44, forthcoming in summer 2012.
Krieger's fiction has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Tampa Review, Shambhala Sun (nonfiction), KNOCK, and THEMA. Other works have been finalists for the 2010 Narrative Winter Story contest and the 2009 Danahy Award.
His education in writing is informal: simply, the countless hours, months, and years he has spent with a pen and his imagination working on the craft, getting feedback from friends, and studying admired works on his own.
