Judah Jones - notable online story of 2008

storySouth Million Writers 2009

Wow.. how lovely. My story Silver Leaves for Judah Jones in Per Contra Journal of the Arts, Literature and Ideas - HERE has been selected as one of the Notable Stories of 2008 in this year's Million Witers Awards.
And another Workhouser, Benjamin Bucholtz, is another 'notable' writer, with his story New Joe in Storyglossia, HERE

This is sort of the longlist. The full list is published today HERE. Now the shortlisting is done by the editor of storySouth.

Coo. This is lovely.

Wonderful news! That's your prize-winning story, right? How lovely! I must try and write something over 1000 words this year :)

Vanessa Gebbie said...

Thanks T! Yes, it won the Per Contra prize in early 2008. Its also part of the 'novel-type thing'.

Congrats Vanessa, well deserved, it's a terrific story, a real cut above.

Diane said...

Congrats - fully deserved. I came across this story on Per Contra a few weeks ago after my tutor suggested I read your work. I was so stunned by the story and your writing I was unable to write anything for three days and that rarely happens to me.
