The Sanctuary Magazine's Candlewick Prize

The Sanctuary Magazine's Candlewick Prize is awarded to one contributor who fully embraces the mission of our magazine, introduces unique perspectives to our sense of normalcy, and answers our call to "pound on the cathedral door" 

This year's prize was awarded to Kaci MoDavis for her poem "Garbagemen Harboring My Organs." Kaci's powerful use of voice, perspective, and imagery draws the reader into a scene that leaves them awestruck. To follow the words of our mission statement, Kaci's piece "encourages new perspectives of the fantastical and mundane." The moment we read it we knew it would pull readers from their reality to spend time in ours.
