Late Night Library

2014 Debut-litzer Finalists

Late Night Library is excited to announce our 2014 Debut-litzer finalists! We received an incredibly diverse array of debut fiction and poetry this year, which kept our volunteer readers shin-deep in stacks of submissions. As always, choosing the finalists is an incredibly tough decision when faced with so many unique submissions. The Debut-litzer’s mission is to recognize and celebrate debut writing that might otherwise be overlooked, and we are in awe of how many fantastic debuts we receive every year.

Huge thank-yous to all the writers, publishers, and agents who submitted, as well as all of our volunteer readers!
