Winner of the 2018 Lillian E. Smith Writer-in-Service Award
I'm ecstatic to announce that I've been chosen as the winner of the 2018 Lillian E. Smith Writer-in-Service Award, which is "open to U.S. residents working to advance writing through public service careers or volunteer work. [...] This award provides an opportunity for those writers who, like Lillian E. Smith, recognize “the power of the arts to transform the lives of all human beings.”
As part of the award, I will receive a $500 honorarium, a $500 travel stipend, and a two-week residency at the Lillian E. Smith Center of Piedmont College.
It's an honor, and I can't wait to write in Georgia!
