I've been sitting on this one way too long, but today I can announce that I've been longlisted for the 2015 CBC Canada Writes Creative Nonfiction Prize! There are 30 of us on the longlist, and I'm humbled and honoured to be sharing the list with some amazing and notable writers. Fingers crossed!
"Declination," my short story of magical realism, has gone live at The Prairie Journal's website!
I am excited to announce that "A Week on the Water," a Hamilton short story, has been shortlisted for the 2015 Bristol Short Story prize!
It's a big deal: mine is one of 20 shortlisted stories (from more than 2400 entries) that will be published in the contest anthology, and has a shot at the £1000 grand prize (I've already earned a cool £100 for being shortlisted). The winners will be announced on October 10.
