The Calvino Prize

(Good news catch-up post, one of four.)

I discovered back in December—was I Googling myself? I think I might have been Googling myself—that I was/am a finalist for the 2011 Calvino Prize. I submitted a batch of connected short-short stories under the title “Seven Easy Renditions.” The stories won’t end up in Salt Hill, but as they say, it’s awfully nice to be nominated!
