Today is the day. Welcome to Bordertown is officially out. And today is also the day to announce the winner of the Bordertown Lives pendant Mia Nutick has so graciously offered for my contest. And the winner is: Kathy Barreca.
If you haven’t taken a little dip into the contest entrant’s pool in my previous post, please do. ALL of them were great, but Kathy’s hooked me because of the magical device she used as her way to get to Bordertown: Robert Frost’s poem, The Road Not Taken. It was simple yet totally evocative, and I think poems are magical routes to other places. Sometimes into another person’s psychic landscape, and sometimes into more easily visited places.
But you should go read all of the entrants’ posts because they’re all good in so many different ways. One writer even has television writing credits in her background and didn’t enter to win, just to participate in a round of storytelling fun, which is totally a Bordertown thing to do. 🙂
Congratulations, Kathy. I’ll be getting you in touch with Mia shortly, and congratulations to all those readers who have been eagerly awaiting the new anthology, and congratulations to the editors and writers who all had the opportunity to work on bringing the place back for a spell.
