    Hi Rita-
    I know you from the AACBWI list. I also subscribe to Funds for Writers. When I read the Success of the Week, I thought, this woman is a go-getter. And then I recognized your name. I watched your film. It was great. I was very impressed! Congratulations on all of your successes.

    Hi Gwendolyn!
    Thanks so much for writing in. I’m so glad you liked the film. We had to squeeze all that creativity into five minutes, but we had lots of fun doing it. I’ll be posting the upcoming Narrative Magazine contest this weekend. Be on the lookout for it. Also, I checked out your author’s site, very nice! Best wishes for all you do!
