      About the Nelligan Prize:

      The Nelligan Prize for Short Fiction was established in 2004 in memory
      of Liza Nelligan, a writer, editor, and friend of many in Colorado
      State University’s English Department, where she received her master’s
      degree in literature in 1992. By giving an award to the author of an
      outstanding short story each year, we hope to honor Nelligan’s life,
      her passion for writing, and her love of fiction. The Nelligan Prize is
      offered annually. The winner receives a $1,500 honorarium and the story
      is published in the fall/winter issue of Colorado Review.
