WriterHouse member Carolyn O'Neal, took second place in the 2013 Hook Short Story Contest judged by John Grisham. By our count, that makes the eighth WriterHouse member or former member to win a prize in this annual contest, and we couldn't be prouder.
Carolyn found the inspiration for her story, "Saving Grace," last summer while reading an Esquire magazine article about the tar sands in Alberta, Canada. Congratulations, Carolyn!
