I am applying for the 2018 Emerging Artist Award, sponsored by Content Magazine and Silicon Valley Creates. My writing sample includes text from two published magazine pieces (“The Women of the Olympic Project for Human Rights” and “Throwing Convention: Margaret Jenkins, ‘25 Education”) and “The Bridge,” a fiction piece that is excerpted from my novel-in-progress. This excerpt won the 2018 Mendocino Coast Writers Conference writing contest in the novel category, as judged by Shanthi Sekaran, and will be published in the 2019 Noyo River Review.
I believe this sample is representative of my literary voice, both in nonfiction and fiction.
Thank you for considering my work. And, in the off chance that someone finds this who is not on the jury for the Emerging Artist award, I hope you enjoy my work.
