“When I first started writing, I used to pore through the back pages of Poets & Writers Magazine. I entered lots of contests that way. When at last I placed in a contest and my name was listed in the back of Poets & Writers Magazine, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. I walked around my apartment clutching a copy of the magazine in my arms. I remain grateful to Poets & Writers for giving me hope when things felt rather hopeless.”
