51OOB5veYiL__SL500_AA240_My essay, “On Failure,” which appeared in the online literary magazine, Blood Orange Review, has eked out a Special Mention in the 2010 Pushcart Prize anthology. This is my third Special Mention in the prize series with the first two in 2007 & 2008. In 2009, I was lucky enough to actually win the Prize.

This year is especially gratifying because my very close friends and former MFA peers, Bryan Fry and Stephanie Lenox, are two of the three founding masterminds behind Blood Orange Review.  I remember the day Bryan called and asked me to write something for their journal. “We’re doing a special issue on failure,” he said. “And naturally, we thought of you.” I hemmed and hawed, and finally agreed to write something. Glad I did. You can read, “On Falure,” by clicking here.
