CRAFT Creative Nonfiction Prize


Following Floodlights Instead of the Moon” beautifully weaves the story of an internship caring for baby sea turtles and a deep meditation on motherhood and womanhood and want. The essay moves through metaphor and meaning, and expertly juxtaposes the motherless journey of baby loggerheads, while the narrator negotiates the sometimes-thin line between nurture and abandonment.”  —Ira Sukrungruang
