To date my published works and accolades are few, but what I have written has been received well.
My greatest literary accomplishments to date have been winning a fish of the month prize for a feature article in a local newspaper, being the 'roving reporter' and columnist for the West Australian coarse Anglers Club newsletter and magazine for several years, becoming a blog writer for the 2010 World Carp Classic website, and having a series of three articles published in 2010 in the prestigious carp fishing magazine 'Carpworld.'
Sometimes, and yes, I have won a few awards.
i didnt even know they have competitions.... that sounds like somthing id injoy.
Yes and yes... But not very often, I have been approached before and asked to submit, I tend not to seek competitions out. Maybe I should!
My book was nominated for the 2010 CYBILS Awards. It was such an honor!
Winner of the 2011 Readers Favorite Silver Award in its category!
No, just when I was younger. I'm not really interested in that!
I'm just starting to. Not yet, but trying!
I have a profile on Wanderlust, a UK travellers magazine:
I contribute to them online occasionally.
I've participated in a few competitions, but nothing very major.
I have participated in the UK for the text message competition for 150-word stories. Haven't won anything yet.
Unless you count the bingo and drinking contests at my local pub.
Not yet, don't have enough confidence yet
Not yet, but I'm going to. And I believe that this will happen very soon.
No, I am an Anthropology student and have no time for such things.
I compete with our cat, Fraud, all the time. I have the scars on my snout to prove it.
I won an award for finding the biggest Tuscan truffle one time.
I don't compete.
I do not participate in many competitions. I have in the past, but I noticed that the competitions all had weird stipulations by which they are judged. Some were judged by acquisition editors of major publishers looking for a standardized, formulaic stories, and others are judged by people looking for certain promotional aspects to be exploited. At least, that's what I've understood, and so I have tended to avoid them.
