IWSG: Anthology Contest Winners


It's the first Wednesday of the month, and time for members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group to share their writerly insecurities. The group was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and those interested in joining in can visit www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com for more information.

Right. It's a brand new year, and with that comes new possibilities. This is usually when I share my goals and resolutions for the year, but I would have to relegate that to a future post, because right now, I would like to share some good news that I've been waiting to share. As some of you may know, I'd participated in the IWSG Anthology Contest a few months back. Well, the winners have been officially announced, and guess who's short story has been shortlisted to appear in the anthology? Hint, his name starts with an M.

I was pretty stoked when I'd first learnt that my little story had been chosen to appear in the anthology, which would be published sometime this year. I mean, I'd submitted an entry for the contest almost on a whim and didn't give it much thought after that. I would like to take this moment to thank Alex and all the other IWSG admins, for providing this wonderful opportunity to we insecure writers. I would also like to congratulate my fellow winners. I can't wait to see what stories you'd come up with.

  1. You did indeed win! And the only male author - not sure how that happened. Great job, Michael. And the publisher has been trying to reach you, so hope you got their email.

    1. Thanks, Yolanda. I know what you mean, because I also struggle to find the time, especially now that I am working full-time and schooling at the same time.

  8. Nike è diventato AS kit fornitore di Roma nel 2014, un anno dopo che il club aveva separato i sensi con sponsor precedente Kappa. Nella stagione 2013-14, Roma notoriamente sfoggiava kit non di marca. Una costante da allora è la mancanza di uno sponsor camicia, e nulla ha indicato finora che questo cambierà nella stagione 2016-17.poco prezzo
