Well, the results are in.
I am not a winner.
I am not going to win the following, according to the NCTE site: “$10,000 cash prize along with travel and lodging to attend the Norman Mailer Center’s Annual Gala on November 8, 2011, in New York City, where the Mailer Prize and the Norman Mailer High School and College Writing Awards are also presented. The winner will also receive a fellowship to the prestigious Norman Mailer Writers Colony during the summer of 2012.”
This was my first professional writing contest I’ve ever entered. I’m not discouraged, though. I’m going to keep writing and keep competing.
