All-Story Wins the 2018 NMA!
Zoetrope: All-Story has won the 2018 National Magazine Award for Fiction (renamed this year the ASME Award for Fiction), the highest honor due an American periodical, marking our second straight win and our third such accolade in five years. The judges distinguished the following stories: "The Tornado Auction" by Karen Russell, "Proof" by Elizabeth McCracken, and "The Full Middle of Zero" by Onyinye Ihezukwu. We congratulate Karen, Elizabeth, Onyinye, and all of our contributors on another year of unparalleled work.
A Design Honor
Zoetrope: All-Story has been selected for inclusion in the 2018 Brno Biennale of Graphic Design, to be held May 10 to August 26 in the Czech city of Brno. Established in 1963, it’s among the oldest and most prestigious exhibitions of visual culture worldwide.
An Operatic Adaptation
On January 19 at the Kennedy Center, the Washington National Opera premiered a new work, Proving Up, closely adapted from Karen Russell's story "The Hox River Window," which debuted in our Fall 2011 edition and went on to win the 2012 National Magazine Award for Fiction. Critical reaction has been rhapsodic.
