We are in the process of announcing the MVICW Contest winners. We were all deeply impressed by your writing. The humor in this piece is really excellent. It reminds me of Katherine Dunn’s work as well as Sharma Shields, while having a voice entirely your own. You seem a perfect match for our program, and given the strength of your submission and additional funding available this year, we’d like to offer you a MVICW Author Fellowship. We believe in your work and I hope you’ll be able to accept the award!
