I didn’t win the Martyn Godfrey Young Writers’ Award.
The competition was pretty steep. I heard they had more than 150 submissions – and a lot of good ones!
I’m still proud of my story, though.
I guess my parents are, too, since they’re sending me to WordsWorth! That’s right, I’m heading to camp this summer for a week of writing and hanging out with some amazing Albertan talent.
Seriously, check out this blog – www.yabswordsworthblogspot.com - and read about the awesome instructors that I’ll be working with in Bragg Creek. I hear there are dozens of walking or running trails at Kamp Kiwanis, too.
How perfect is that? Writing AND running – at WordsWorth.
Are you going?
If you haven’t registered yet, you’d better hurry! The camps are filling up.
