The final winner and placings lists are out for the 2017 William Faulkner-William Wisdom writing competition, and Peauxdunquians are all up in that list. To-wit:
- In the short story category, Tad Bartlett has stories that made the final short list and the longer “finalists” list–his stories “Thousand-Year Oak” and “Elysian Fields,” respectively.
- In the novel category, Amy Conner‘s Holy Water was a finalist, and her Lost, Stolen, or Strayed was a semi-finalist. Also in the novel category, Emily Capdeville‘s Forbidden: Permit Required was a finalist.
- In the novel-in-progress category, Susan Kagan‘s Rapture Fever was a finalist, as was Stephanie Stoecker‘s The Pilot Plans.
- And in the poetry category, Sanem Ozdural‘s “One Two Tree” was on the final short list.
All of the winners and the placing writers will be honored during the 2017 Words and Music Conference, from December 7 through 10 at the Hotel Monteleone. Hope to see y’all there!
