West 10th is a literary journal publishing poetry, prose, and photography by New York University's undergraduate students. It is edited and produced annually by a student-run editorial board and by the NYU Creative Writing Program.
To celebrate the publication of West 10th, the NYU Creative Writing Program sponsors the West 10th Editors’ Awards each spring. Program faculty members serving as Executive Editors select one poem and one prose piece from the student contributions to be featured in the upcoming issue of the journal. Award recipients each receive a prize of $200. The 2018 Editors' Award Winner in Prose is Abbie Donoghue for her piece "Octillo." The 2018 Editors' Award Winner in Poetry is David Brake for his poem "When the Kids Die."
