“The written word is a powerful form of expression, but crafting a book takes perseverance and there are many times I’ve nearly given up writing. I am delighted that After Miigaadiwin will now have the opportunity to touch lives even as it has touched mine.”
— Anna Raddon,
2017 Fiction Winner for After Miigaadiwin

“Not only am I grateful that my manuscript was selected as the winner, I am deeply honored. That this story, my story, of the overwhelming goodness of God in the midst unimaginable horror, could be shared with a global audience is the highest honor I could show to those still persecuted around the world today. Thank you, Word Alive Press, for making this possible!”

— Chris Karuhije,
2017 Non-Fiction Winner for We Were Royal Refugees
