Results of the 2020 Place and Home Contest
Congratulations to the winners of the 2020 Dreamers Stories of Migration, Sense of Place and Home Contest.
This contest honours the term “Dreamers” as it applies to migration, place and home. Selecting just one entry was extremely difficult, as each of these winning stories, poems and essays embodied the theme of this contest in their own uniquely beautiful way.
In the end, we awarded a first place prize and a second place prize. Both selections were published in Issue 5 of the Dreamers Magazine, and online on the Dreamers website.
Additionally, we chose 5 honorable mentions. Each honorable mention received an honorarium of $20 and online publication.
Here’s the winning line-up!
