“Family Conference” was included in the top 25 stories in Glimmer Train Short Stories for New Writer’s Competition-August, 2010
Thank you so much for participating in our August 2010 Short Story Award for New Writers—we really enjoyed your story! Although it did not win this time, I am happy to inform you that it did make the Top-25* list—congratulations. (That’s the top 2 – 3% of over a thousand submissions!) Be sure to mention this achievement as you send the piece back out into the world. Here’s a link to a pdf of the list that you can post on your blog, etc., as you like. (And you can log in and click on My Submissions to see your finalist status there.)
You can go to www.glimmertrain.org and click on the “Top-25” on that page. The announcement will also be made in the emailed September bulletin. If you don’t already get our bulletins, ask your email server to put mail.glimmertrainpress.com on your safe-senders list, or you can check the bulletin archives after the 10th of the month.
Thank you again for letting us read your work–it is a pleasure!
