Please forgive the extremely late announcement, but I am so thrilled to share with you that my short story “The Urg” won the inaugural Porter House Review Prize for Fiction in March 2019! I completed this story while working with Willy Vlautin and Jack Driscoll at Pacific University, and am so, so grateful for their advice, feedback, and support. I am also incredibly grateful to the team at Porter House Review, and so proud of an accomplishment that four years ago I believed impossible.

Read the “The Urg” here, but please be warned, it involves disordered eating, which may upset some readers.

I am delighted to announce that my modern gothic story "The Lady of the House" has been included in Issue #34 of Mud Season Review! Editor-in-chief Lauren Bender writes: "In Constance Renfrow’s story “The Lady of the House,” what appears to be a classic ghost story takes on an extra psychosocial layer, exploring the dysfunctional relationship between the main character Marla and her new husband Armand."

Check out "The Lady of the House" or read the full issue here.
