Kirie Pedersen’s creative non-fiction piece, “In a Dark Time,” recipient of the Magnolia Review Ink Award, has also been nominated for the prestigious Pushcart Prize.
The editor of Magnolia Review wrote about “In a Dark Time”: I choose submissions that I can read over and over again, that continuously bring joy and awe and beauty. This piece unifies the entire issue. It stands out. It reads well. It is something I’ll remember long after I’ve stopped reading. It is an immediate “Yes! Let’s publish this.”
The story begins – In a dark time, the eye begins to see.” Theodore Roethke
