No Cigar (Yet)

I'm so pleased to reveal that I was one of the 10 finalists for the Prairie Schooner Prize this year. Although I didn't receive the award, I was given a kind and encouraging rejection.

This is probably the closest to winning I've come so far. It was like being close to a fire. Or, close to Eduardo. (Same thing)
