Winning a Contest is Always Encouraging

What a fun night! Last week I attended the EPIC Writers annual contest evening . . .  well, I went because pic w group 1st place

I won first place for my fiction entry, The Frenchmen which you can read on their site. The theme for the contest was JOURNEY. The other winning entrants and I read our stories to the audience and received award certificates. I SO enjoyed hearing what the talented YA/teen winners and runners up read. All of which were reminders of how fragile life is, how universal our stories are, and how no matter how old we get we still remember teen angst and the

longing to journey to the unknown.

I’d like to say thank you to the EPIC organization who has done a top-notch job as a new arts organization.   My Edmonds News also ran a piece on the night.

Thank you EPIC! It’s always a great experience when my work resonates with anyone. To win was encouraging, as winning always is.
