I entered a writing contest a couple of weeks ago ... and won!
Aspiring writers of literary fiction and/or short stories were invited to submit manuscripts for discussion and feedback.
The prize is a 1 hour one-on-one meeting with the Writer in Residence at the Toronto Public Library, Kim Echlin.
Kim Echlin is an award-winning author, translator, editor, documentary-maker and teacher. Her books include The Disappeared, which was shortlisted for the Giller Prize, winner of the Barnes & Noble Discover Award, and was translated into 17 languages.
Well, you can imagine my excitement. I'm scheduled to meet with her next month - how will I ever be able to wait this long?
