We will welcome Jamila Minnicks winner of the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction for the novel Moonrise Over New Jessup. Minnicks’s debut novel is both a celebration of Black joy and a timely examination of the opposing viewpoints that attended desegregation in the South.

Author Jamila Minnicks’s work is also published in CRAFT Literary Magazine, Catapult, Blackbird, The Write Launch, and her piece, “Politics of Distraction”, was nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Jamila also earned a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Minnicks is a graduate of the University of Michigan, the Howard University School of Law, and the Georgetown University Law Center. She lives in Washington, DC. The PEN/Bellwether Prize is a career-founding prize, which promotes fiction that addresses issues of social justice and the impact of culture and politics on human relationships. Established by Barbara Kingsolver in 2000, it is awarded biennially to the author of a previously unpublished novel of high literary caliber that exemplifies the prize’s founding principles.
