Thrilled that Autumn House Press named my poetry manuscript a finalist in their 2016 competition. When I saw the names of the winner and the other finalists, I felt as though I had won the gold. Such amazing and accomplished writers! A huge congratulations to poetry winner Jane Satterfield for Field Manual for the Forgotten.  As for my manuscript? Not to worry. I’ve done an overhaul and I’m eager to begin a new round of competitions.
