Team Winning Writer

It seems like only a breath ago that we were at the 2020 WWW Conference, attending sessions, visiting in chat rooms, and congratulating the finalist and winners of the WILLA Literary Award, the LAURA Short Fiction Award, and DOWNING Journalism Award. 

And now, through the Women Writing the West Blog, we look forward to showcasing accomplishments of our members.

We are inviting each of our WWW writing family to share awards and placings they have received for individual book titles, articles submitted and published in magazines or other periodicals. The achievements would be other than any recognition received for WWW awards. Refer to the Members Only section under Blog Submissions: Awards and Recognition, to submit your information. 

Thank you, Alice Trego for providing us with these results for the first Team Winning Writer shout out.
