Here’s an adorable picture of my best friend Rachel at the Quebec Writers Federation gala, accepting the carte blanche 3Macs Prize on my behalf for my essay “Ferrante in the Cellar: A Vulgar Appreciation” (more about the 3Macs Prize here.)
I'd like to take a moment to thank carte blanche, The Quebec Writers Federation, Klara DuPlessis, and especially Laurence Miall who solicited and edited "Ferrante in the Cellar," taking a blind chance on what I initially believed was an un-publishable piece of writing. Thank you to prize judge, the incredible Liz Howard, for recognizing my work—which feels like an award in and of itself. Also, huge congratulations to finalists Kasia Juno and Lauren Turner. I'm honoured to be in your company.
