2007 Confluence Writing Contest Win!

I know I just posted and some of you are now going into shock at the surprise of another one so close, but I need to share something wonderful.

My short story, Unique Worlds, won first place in The Twelfth Annual PARSEC Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Story Contest! To make this happen, all I had to do was introduce dragon fewmets into the modern world. Hmm, does that make this my first urban fantasy?

Anyway, as part of the prize, my story will appear in the Confluence 2007 program book for everyone to read. I’m also going to the conference as I couldn’t let this opportunity slip by. I may even become part of the program, a scary and exciting thought.

So, if you happen to be coming to the conference, it would be fun to put faces to…umm…usernames (;)).

The conference info is here:

    Heh. This year’s vacation allotment has been eaten with family obligations. Not going to Writer’s Weekend either this year.

    I’m excited to hear that you’re finally going to something away from home, though 😀

    I’m afraid I won’t make it out to the conference, but I checked out the site, and there are some impressive names there. Have a blast!

    Thanks :). I guess I have to move on now though. I’m ineligible to run in the contest again :). For the best of reasons.

    Guess you were right. At least so far, this is becoming my year for sure.

  11. marfisk says:

    Thanks :).

    It should be amazing.

  12. marfisk says:

    Thanks Val :).

  13. marfisk says:

    Thanks :D. And that’s too bad. It’s across the country for me, but it would be foolish not to go, eh?

  14. hoshikaze says:

    Thanks for the congrats. Sorry for the delayed response. I was off climbing mountains in Yellowstone National Park.

    And that’s great Wendy. It’ll be interesting to meet for real :).
