WOOP! Last year I won my first ever competition with my story, Roll of Honour, in the Lest We Forget category of the Canadian Stories Magazine's literary contest. So I entered again this year in a different category, and just received this email from the magazine's managing editor, Ed Janzen:
You won again.
"The Thing About Pantyhose"
in Creative Non-Fiction.
One judge noted she loved the story.
A cheque will be wending its way to you ASAP as well as a framable certificate to hang on your (cluttered?) wall.
Are you coming to the August convention and telling us how you do it?
I'm just a little pumped!!!
That's eight of my stories to be published this year.
