2022 Mormon Lit Blitz Voting

Each year, we award a small cash prize to an audience favorite piece from the Mormon Lit Blitz. To vote, look through the pieces and rank your favorite four. Then cast your vote here.

The finalists are:
Tower of Babel” by Darlene Young
Chickens without End” by Julia Jeffrey
2 Coats” by Jared Forsyth
Through a Glass” by Alixa Brobbey
Blood in the Garden” by Whitney Hemsath
Cristo en el huerto de Getsemaní” by Gabriel González Núñez

Leah at the Edges” by Merrijane Rice

Voting is open from Monday, June 13th until the end of the day on Sunday, June 19th. The winner of the $125 Grand Prize will be announced on Monday, June 20th. At that time, we’ll also announce a judge’s choice piece selected by Christopher J. Blythe, who teaches Literature of the Latter-day Saints at Brigham Young University.

Next Contest

This fall, we’ll be doing extra work to encourage Latter-day Saints around the world to submit pieces in their own language. Details about the contest will be coming shortly.

Book Mentoring Project

We love what people do with 1,000 words. If you enjoy the kind of literature you’ve read in the Mormon Lit Blitz, though, we hope you’ll also consider donating $5, $10, or $20 to support the eight authors currently in our book mentoring program.
