writerly news

In January, Christopher and I submitted essays to this year's David O. McKay contest. Today was the last day the winners would be notified. When I found nothing but junk in the mail box this morning, I figured we had expected too much, and therefore, the universe paid us back with last place (when I won in '06, I had forgotten that I even submitted the essay at all).

But then I got a phone call. Looks like the universe just wanted us to wait for a second.
  • Christopher won an Honorable Mention in the undergraduate division. You guys heard Christopher's essay at the family Christmas party and it's pretty much amazing.
  • I won first place for the graduation division.
The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, April 16th, at 1pm. I know it's a fairly inconvenient time. But if you have time that day, come for some free food.
