And this time you can help me win! I submitted the first chapter of my book, tentatively entitled "wardroids" to Creative Arts Burlington for their first annual arts recognition awards. Unfortunately, there's nowhere where you can actually read my submission, or look at any of the other submissions in any of the categories. You'll just have to trust that it is as brilliant as this blog...and anything else you may have read of mine.
There are three nominees in the litery arts category: Jennifer Filipowicz (that's me), Bobbie Smith (some random person), and Sylvia McNicoll. That's right, Sylvia McNicoll. Ever since I was in her womb she's been trying to steal my thunder. This is sure to split the family and friend vote, leaving Bobbie poised to grab my prize!
Don't let it happen! Vote here. You can vote online or print out a ballot to send it (although why you would go to the trouble of finding a stamp when you're already at the website is completely baffling to me). There are also links to everyone's website, but ignore those and just trust that I'm the best. Don't bother with the other categories either, just type in your e-mail and click the little round button thing beside my name and click "vote." Yeah, it's pretty straight forward.
Edit: It looks like Creative Burlington has now put our bios up. And there's links to writing samples. Although my link just says "sample coming soon". I'm not sure why they didn't just put everything up at the same time, but it's their first year doing this so maybe next year they'll be more on the ball.
