A winner!

My short story “Where It’s Buried” has been a true testament to dedication and perseverance.

I first wrote the story during NaNoWriMo in 2013. I rewrote it and expanded on it the next year, got some feedback, and rewrote it again (practically doubling it in length). Then it was workshopped¬† at the 2015 Tin House Winter Workshop. From that workshop’s amazing feedback, I finally landed on the story it was meant to be all along.

And it finally found a home!

In October, it was announced that “Where It’s Buried” won first place in Five on the Fifth‘s short story contest. The story is now live as part of their November/December issue and I couldn’t be prouder.
