Delighted to announce that while I did not receive enough votes to catch up to first place, the coordinator of the contest reached out to me personally to inform me that they really enjoyed my story and thought it deserved a special award. They are offering me $300 and a variety of opportunities to work and/or write with them in the future.
Overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of support I received from friends, family, and strangers to help me with this goal.
…but I need your help! I’ve been selected as a finalist for Enchanting Travels Travel Writing Award, and I am in the top 10. The winner is determined by the person who gets the most Facebook likes on his or her story by the end of September, which is quickly approaching!

Weeks ago, I found out one of my pieces had been longlisted for a travel writing contest.
The week after, I received an e-mail congratulating me on making the shortlist.
While I didn’t end up winning the contest, I’m so happy to be included on this shortlist alongside such talented writers, and will be submitting again next year!
Congratulations to all who placed, and thank you all again for your support!
