Outdoor Adventure Writing

And the winner of the 2011 Great Northern Canada Writing Contest is…well, me.

My story, Nowhere but North: a Case for Cornbread and Wolverines, took first prize in this years’ contest, hosted by the Northwords Writing Festival.  The story was inspired by a fierce appetite and some unexpected events during a seven-week solo canoe trip in Nunavut.

You can find it on a magazine rack near you in the July 2011 edition of Above and Beyond: Canada’s Arctic Journal, or on page 42 of the digital edition here.
