Antioch Review nominated for National Magazine Award

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio—January 15, 2015—The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) today announced that the Antioch Review is a National Magazine Awards 2015 finalist. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 2, 2015.

The Review is nominated in the Fiction category for the work “Afternoon in Byzantium,” by Rick DeMarinis. It appeared in the Summer 2014 issue. Rick DeMarinis's work has appeared regularly in the Antioch Review since 1988 and he was the recipient of the magazine's “Distinguished Writing Awards” given to such writers as Edith Pearlman, James Purdy and other great American stylists.

Editor Robert S. Fogarty said of the nomination:” We have supported DeMarinis's work over the years and his story is a classic mixture of wry humor,a murder mystery and murky themes that are just below the surface-in this case at the bottom of a swimming pool. His work should and now will be exposed to a wider audience.”

The Antioch Review, founded in 1941, is one of the oldest, continuously publishing literary magazines in America. It publishes fiction, essays, and poetry from both emerging as well as established authors. Authors published in the pages of the Review are consistently included in Best American anthologies and Pushcart prizes. The magazine was founded in 1941 by a group of Antioch College faculty members and its offices have remained on the campus of the College ever since.
