Things have been happening here at Birds and Words — even during what felt like endless January.
I recently found out that I won 1st Runner-up in PRISM International‘s Nonfiction contest! My story will be published in the spring issue of PRISM. Alas, the story isn’t birdy, but it does feature East German days-of the-week underwear, which is always a thrill. (In other writing news, I’m also a finalist for the Malahat Review’s Open Season nonfiction contest.)
I’m also thrilled to share that I have an essay forthcoming in the brilliant Kerry Clare‘s anthology The M Word, which comes out in April. Stay tuned. (Alas no birds there either, but there are some kettlebells!)
And a recent blog post I wrote about gifts that will make the birder in your life happy. There’s nothing better than a happy birder. Honestly.
