I didn't win, but my manuscript made it to the final three for the Robin Hardy Scholarship at the Writers Retreat Workshop in Owensboro, KY -- which takes place over a whole ten days, in June. They offered me a five hundred dollar discount -- and under the circumstances, although I could not, in good conscience, have sprung for the cost of this workshop without such encouraging feedback, I have decided to make this investment in myself and my life's dream
Thank you, Holly. You made this possible!
I know how it's going to begin and I know how it's going to end, but I don't know how I'm going to get from one to the other. That, really, is the struggle of the novel.--Martin Amis
