Well, that's one down
The Dorset Prize has been announced, and it wasn't me. Congratulations to Sandra Meek, this year's winner. I scrolled down the list and found I know one finalist, Monica Ferrell (she was a Stegner Fellow also my first year) and one semifinalist, Michael Heffernan, a former teacher of mine from Arkansas. Guess I can start getting nervous about the other end-of-the-year contests as well.
