Just an update since last year's Emerging Writers Award
Just an update since EWA jurying last year. Our joint award winners . . . Catherine Hernandez’s Scarborough Stories has been picked up by Arsenal Pulp Press and will be out Spring 2017. Philip Hyunh has just been signed by local agent Carolyn Swayze Literary Agency and is currently looking for a publisher for his Toad Stories. One of the entries by Eleanor Guerrero-Campbell, Stumbling through Paradise: A Feast of Mercy for Manuel del Mundo about the immigrant journey of a fictional Filipino family in Canada through three generations, has been published. Another one of the entries for last year’s fiction ACWW Emerging Writer’s Award manuscripts just got picked up by a major American publisher Simon & Schuster/Atheneum. It's been a very busy year.
