Fall 2009

Gulf Stream Magazine is pleased to announce that we have a winner in our "_____ Warps the Mind a Little" nonfiction contest. After carefully reviewing our many great submissions, we selected Lori Jakiela's essay "Searching Warps the Mind a Little" as the winner. Her piece was published as part of Issue #2.

Lori Jakiela is the author of a memoir, Miss New York Has Everything (Warner/Hatchette,2006). Her essays have most recently appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Westmoreland Magazine, Pittsburgh Quarterly, and elsewhere. She teaches at The University of Pittsburgh's Greensburg campus and lives in Trafford, Pennsylvania--the birthplace of the chocolate covered pickle.

We congratulate Lori and thank all those who submitted essays.

Please check back again to look for other contests in the future.
