My story placed second in the 2019 Rachel Funari Prize!

Last week I won my very first fiction prize! My short story, The Body Remembers, placed second in the 2019 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction!!!

Big congratulations to the winner of the Prize Jane O’Sullivan for her story Limpet Teeth and to Emily Dang for How to Cook Pho, which placed third. And a huge thank you to the judges Alison Evans, Danielle Binks and Melanie Joosten.

You can read more about the prize at Lip Mag.

The Body Remembers follows the close relationship between a non-binary protagonist and his grandparent with Alzheimer’s disease. The story employ poetic devices while exploring themes of family, transition, and memory (of both the mind and the body).

The winning stories and author Q&As will be published at Lip Mag in the coming weeks!
