UNLV Writer Wins Writing Prize With E-Chapbook

Kayla Miller, a UNLV masters candidate in writing, has won the Five Quarterly e-chapbook prize. The online publication is a magazine for new literary fiction but it also encourages new formats for the Web. That's why the contest is reviving an old form the chapbook as a new e-reading form. The magazine even as a new Android app that you can use to load the e-chapbook on your phone. We talk to Miller about how the Web is affecting literary genres and about the stories in her prize-winning e-chapbook.
