Congrats Bryce Lewis and Sophie Haas for taking home the top prize for their essays on indulgence! We look forward to posting their works in the upcoming weeks.
Loreli's launch party + essay awards ceremony was a drunken good time, as can be corroborated by all the various media posted below. First, there was the awards, with hats off to our six judges, three honorable mentions, and two top-prize winners. Many of the submissions will go up on the Read section over the next few weeks.

And how can we forget, the schmaltzy poems submitted to our DRUNK POETRY BOX throughout the night. See Dec 8th's Read pagefor some of the submissions.

Thanks to all who came out! I'd say hope you had a good time, but we know you did.
Thanks for coming out, and see you at the next party!
