Contest judge Alice Mattison wrote, "I found “Loud Love” a great pleasure to read every time I picked it up. The narrator is a delight, flawed and admirable at once, hilariously honest about the person she finds herself to be. The characters have complexity and depth. The story is funny and meaningful. It’s engaging and believable on every page.”
Fiction editor Jennifer Porter wrote, "The story embodies, in my opinion, not only the spirit of Olsen’s writing but her heart for social activism."
