2014 Gina Berriault Award


Fourteen Hills is thrilled to announce the winner of the Gina Berriault Award: Ella Leffland. This event is set for April 16th, 2014, at The Poetry Center, located at San Francisco State University 1600 Holloway Ave, 5th Floor Room 512, San Francisco. The award presentation begins at 7 p.m. We will have a short introduction, followed by the award winner reading.

Peter Orner, in conjunction with Fourteen Hills, inaugurated the award five years ago to pay homage to Ms. Berriault, a former Creative Writing Department professor. Since its inception, the Gina Berriault Award seeks to honor not only Ms. Berriault, but also a writer who has shown, and whom we believe will continue to show, that love for storytelling, as well as a commitment to helping young writers.
