Congratulations Nita Sweeney!

I'm thrilled to share this big news about my writing friend and Goddard College alum, Nita Sweeney. Nita is an inspiration and unflagging source of support to many writers. It's awesome when you get to see new doors open to a person who's both talented and deserving!


Nita Sweeney's memoir manuscript, Twenty-Six Point Freaking Two: How a Sedentary, Middle-Aged Manic Depressive Became a Marathoner (with the help of her dog) is a finalist in the William Faulkner - William Wisdom Competition in creative nonfiction.


Nita and her husband Ed will attend the Happy Birthday Mr. Faulkner Conference in New Orleans in late September where the winner and runner-up will be announced!

The moon is New and at its closest point to Earth. Now is a powerful time for setting new goals and gathering your energy for a new venture.
