The Alchemy Spoon

close again, but…

The lovely Floating Bridge Press has honored me as one of the finalists in their annual chapbook contest. Here’s what editor Michael Schmeltzer posted on Facebook:

Good morning Washington! We are thrilled to officially announce the winner and finalist of our 2020 Chapbook Competition! After some deliberation, we chose this year’s winner, “The Daughters of Elderly Women” by Brenda Miller of Bellingham, WA, and a finalist, “Posthuman” by Risa Denenberg of Sequim, WA. Both chapbooks will be available by the end of 2020. Please join us in congratulating Brenda and Risa!

A special honorary mention goes to “A Quiet Day With the West on Fire” by Margot Kahn of Seattle!

We’d also like to praise these several finalists, in no particular order, include:
“Apothecary of Desire” by J.I. Kleinberg of Bellingham
“The Missing Ones” by Lauren Davis of Port Townsend
“Instructional Days” by Lucas Wildner of Seattle
“To Have Breathed All These Days” by Jed Myers of Seattle

We are sincerely grateful for the support and patience you have shown us, this year in particular; it was challenging in unpredictable ways and our staff has been managing the best they can (personally and professionally) as I’m sure many of you are, too. Again, thank you.

As the weeks go on you’ll get a chance to get to know the newest authors in the FBP family, Brenda Miller and Risa Denenberg! We are excited to share these lovely chapbooks with you.

Thank you everyone! You keep us floating!

Floating Bridge Press also nominated me for a Best of the Net Award in 2019. Guess I better keep submitting!
