2011 Oberon Writing Competition
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve just won first place in the 2011 Oberon Writing Competition, open prose section, with my short story Invisible Dirt.
Yay! Woot woot!
Distance thwarted my ability to attend the award ceremony, which took place last Saturday in Oberon, over 200km away. But if I’d been there I would have thanked my hubbie for reading Invisible Dirt prior to my entering it in the competition and of course the organisers and judges of the competition. Competitions such as these mean the world to us writers. So thank you and… yay!
