I was excited today to read this tweet from the National Magazine Awards:
When I clicked on the link, I was even more excited to read what the judges had to say about my work:
“With a fresh voice and a strong command of style and structure, Sierra Skye Gemma digs ever deeper into the story of a lost life, writing with both edginess and verve in this meditation on the process of grieving. A terrific example of personal exposition, her story is powerful and lasting.”
I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but I think I’m going to be anxious till the big reveal at the 36th annual National Magazine Awards gala on June 7 at The Carlu in Toronto.
