“1943” Fiction Winner

I was just notified yesterday that “1943” a chapter from my thesis-in-progress won the 2010 International Arts Movement Juried Competition in Fiction. I’ll be doing a reading from my submission at IAM’s annual conference at Cooper Union’s Great Hall in Greenwich Village on Saturday, March 6th. Tickets are still available if you happen to be in the area and feel the burning desire to challenge the way you look at arts and the world.
