Because of You: Miracle Monocle has won the AWP National Program Directors' Prize

July 05, 2018

Dear friends,


Since our last update, we have a wonderful announcement to share with all of you who have supported our publication. Miracle Monocle has won the AWP National Program Directors' Prize for undergraduate literary magazine!


Instituted by the directors of Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) , two National Program Directors' Prizes for undergraduate literary magazines are awarded annually to outstanding journals in the categories of content and design. Each winning magazine receives a $1,000 cash award. Winners are announced in The Writer's Chronicle and in other media, and the winning magazines are acknowledged at AWP's Annual Conference & Bookfair the following year. Prize honoraria are sent directly to the winning magazines. Miracle Monocle won the Content category.


We could not have achieved so much without your philanthropic support. Please accept our sincere thanks!


With gratitude,


Miracle Monocle

Donor Wall

Miracle Monocle will honor all contributions of $10 or more with a spot on our esteemed “wall of donors,” a new page designed specifically for this purpose on our website.


Support Our Interns

Miracle Monocle is staffed by six student interns, all of whom assume critical roles in the creation of the journal. Your donation at this level will help these ambitious young editors expand their career horizons by representing the journal at local—and perhaps even national—conferences and events.


Share Your Work

Every year, Miracle Monocle throws a launch party and reading to celebrate its new issues. Here's your chance to join the 2018 lineup of featured readers, or to invite a writer you know to take the mic.


Name the Award

Miracle Monocle launched its first annual award for innovative writers last year. This year, we invite you to name our awards. Honor a family member or friend, or become the name that writers across the country associate with support for the arts.
