We are proud to announce that Regular Contributor the amazing Christine Jacobson was recently one of 7 finalists for a master fiction class taught by Mary Gaitskill. While she wasn’t one of the 4 ultimately selected, there were over 100 applicants, reviewed and selected based on a submitted writing sample. Great job Christine!
The Becoming Writer Anniversary Writing Contest – The submissions are rolling in and there is three times as many this year. Our judges are hard at work scoring all the stories. We will publish all 175+ submissions on Monday of next week.
And finally, Regular Contributor Jeff Elkins is looking for beta readers for his second novel Mencken and the Monsters. It is a tale of an ambitious reporter seeking to uncover organized crime in Baltimore. Rather than find corruption, he stumbles across homeless superheroes who protect the streets day and night.
