Meet Celeste Prince: I'm a current third year graduate student in the MFA program at the University of Houston, and they just announced the winners of our program's writing awards. I was named the winner for the Inprint/Donald Barthelme Prize in Fiction for 2012-2013, judged by author and UH CWP alum Amber Dermont. It's an annual competition with various prizes. This particluar one comes with a $10,000 fellowship. Very exciting!
