in october 2009, i entered a writing contest. an overnight writing contest at the burlington public library. i and 10 other like-minded writers congregated at Central library at 6:00 on a Friday evening and were locked in with 2 lovely library ladies and a bunch of computers until the cold, grey morn.
entries were judged by the estimable lynda simmons, john lawrence reynolds, and jay robb.
the winners were announced at the end of january, and, holy moly, i came in second place. first prize went to karen kachra and maria mcdonald won third. if you want to see a Burlington Post photo of me and the other winners, click here, then click on number 6.
