success story
PNWA Literary Contest Entrant: Connie Curley

"Because of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, two of my articles have recently been published. 

First, buoyed by favorable comments on an item I had entered in the 2007 PNWA Literary Contest, I submitted it to several magazines for publication.  It was purchased by Mature Living magazine and appears in their July 2009 issue.   

Second, a PNWA eNotes which was sent out the end of November 2007 included a "Call for Stories From Cancer Patient."  The selected submissions were to be included in an upcoming book by Dr. Bernie Siegel.  The book came out in April of this year, and my story is a part of it. 

Thank you for the inspiration and the information!"
