My work placed in six recent literary contests. Two were from Glimmer Train literary magazine: honorable mention in the spring Fiction Open and top 25 in the spring Very Short Fiction Open. I was one of four finalists for the 2015 Robert and Adele Schiff Award for fiction, one of two finalists for the 2016 Bass River Press Poetry Competition, and a semifinalist in the 2016 Raymond Carver Short Story Contest. I am also a two-time winner of the Willis Barnstone Translation Prize.
