We received word this week that Gordon Rives Carmichael has landed in the finalist pool in the Writer’s League of Texas Manuscript Contest. Gordon’s work has come past our manuscript table here for more than a year, with lots of evidence of polishing and extending his skills.

Gordon, we congratulate you. Best of luck in the finals selection; the conference is June 26. Even being nominated, as the Oscar winners say, is an honor.

This sort of milestone can only happen if you get your writing out there, in front of readers. Offer something up soon.
