ScatchetPoet wins a prize! My nonfiction essay "Shaped By Cedar" was recently awarded second prize in the competition from Jane's Stories Press Foundation. Watch for their new anthology, "Bridges and Borders," in which the essay will be published. Many thanks to JSPF.
More rewarding than winning prizes, however, is knowing that my writing will be available in published form for readers all over the world. Writing can be such an isolated activity; staring at that electronic page/monitor/taskmaster, some days it is hard to envision that real human beings will be reading the words.
Speaking of readers: Write Wing's new poetry anthology "Surrounded: Living With Islands" should be ready to read by late April or early May. All submitting poets have now received responses to their poems, and decisions are well underway as to format, layout, cover design, etc. Watch for a gorgeous book to be released!
