The South Carolina Writer's Workshop offers the Carrie McCray Memorial Literary Awards in three categories: Novel-First Chapter, Poetry, and Non-Fiction.
And despite being a Nervous Nellie about entering competitions, I was bolstered enough by my win in the In Other Words Competition at the Pennwriters Conference earlier in the year to dare submitting work in a couple categories.
Guess what? I won second place in the Non-Fiction category! Needless to say, I am incredibly thrilled to have my work selected for such a fantastic award. So let me publicly thank the South Carolina Writer's Workshop and the judges who reviewed the entries.
Did I mention I'm over the moon about this? Because I am!
