My daughter the published writer
I just wanted to share with you some great news about my daughter Sarah. Here is a picture of the two us in Missoula a couple years ago. Now back to my news, as some of you know she is a senior at the University of Montana in the creative writing program.
In April she is going to be published in Scribendi which is a magazine for the which is based at the University of New Mexico. She has been awarded the prize for short fiction for her story Copernicus goes to London the Third. This includes publication of her story, a $250.00 prize and entrance to their conference being held in Jackson, WY in April.
This group picks winners in 5 categories, short fiction, photography, art, poetry, and cover designs. There were 487 entries from 13 western states. So this is a substantial honor. I am so excited for her and this mom is so proud of her daughter that she had to share it with all of you.
