My story “Idyllic Little Bali,” which first ran in Prairie Schooner in Summer 2009, recently won the Lawrence Foundation Award, an award with a cash prize of $1000 (yay!), given to a short story published in Prairie Schooner during the previous year. I’m honored to be the recipient. To read about my award and the recipients of other awards given by Prairie Schooner, go to their news post here. Thank you to Prairie Schooner for publishing the story and selecting it for this award as well as to the Lawrence Foundation for making this award possible.
