Molting (winner of honorable mention)
My piece, Molting, won honorable mention and 4th place in the non-fiction category of the Women’s National Book Association 2018 Writing Contest. It will soon appear in their official publication, Bookwoman.
Here is an excerpt:
I don't want to be a violinist anymore.
I’m barely whispering, but the words scrape my heart.
Flat on my back on the floor of my tiny apartment, I don’t even notice that the sun’s gone down.
ANGEL TREE ARTICLE
Every year, hundreds of adults and children in the community unwrap gifts and food from the Church of the Incarnation's Angel Tree drive.
We wanted to know more about these recipients. What are their stories? What do they think and feel when they get their gifts? I wrote about their stories in the church's quarterly print publication.
