September Writing News

I received another Honorable Mention in the Writers of the Future Contest, this time for my Q3 2013 story.

The story  has an unusual structure and point of view which makes it rather different from most stories that have won the contest. It’s heartening to know that even though it isn’t exactly the contest’s cup of tea, it got some recognition.

I’ve been revising the story I workshopped at my UCLA class over the summer. It has evolved quite a bit since the original draft.  I’m still working through some final tweaks, but I think it is greatly improved owing to the feedback of my classmates and the awesome Alyx Dellamonica.  I’m hoping to take another class with her soon, perhaps “Writing the Fantastic” when it comes around next.
