Forever a Bridesmaid

Shortly after getting word that my manuscript, Yoshida’s Sword, had achieved 2nd place in a competition (see previous post), I received news that secures my position in the front row of writing bridesmaids everywhere – another 2nd and a 3rd as follows:

  • The Shuswap Association of Writers has awarded me second place in the fiction category of the Word on the Lake writing contest for my short story Driving to Newfoundland. The award includes publication in an anthology. The contest is part of the WORD ON THE LAKE WRITERS FESTIVAL which takes place May 19th-21st. Thank you SAOW.
  • My non-fiction article, Time Travel in Lantian, placed 3rd in the WRITE ON! competition sponsored by the Royal City Literary Arts Society of New Westminster. This award also includes publication. The judge, Bryant Ross, said, “A vivid setting, excellent resolution. I felt as if I was there, in the passenger seat, enduring the discomfort and sharing the discoveries.” Thank you Bryant Ross and RCLAS.

Actually, being a bridesmaid feels pretty good!
