Last night I had the pleasure of joining a group of writers at a BookPeople reception for the Austin Chronicle’s 25th Annual Short Story Contest finalists. I had the additional pleasure of reading my own story as the 2nd place winner! I had never previously submitted any creative writing for publication or to contests, so it was a very surprising and encouraging start.
You can read the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place stories online here.
BookPeople generously co-sponsored the event and can rest assured that my prize money will be funneled right back to the store as my to-read list is almost as long as the story I wrote.
