Steph @ California Clipper
Met up with Liz and Steph (and Marcus) for a Guild Complex reading tonight, at the California Clipper. She’s read here before, but tonight’s reading was for the Guild’s annual awards ceremony, for fiction and non-fiction.
A dark shot of the table. The room was fairly intimate, so I didn’t feel like having a big intrusive flash go off.
And guess what? Steph’s short story, The Deaf Girl ended up winning for Fiction! And along with the accolades, she also gets a whopping $500 prize!
After the reading, Liz, Steph and I hung around and chatted over beer. I asked what they were going to do with the prize money. Their reply?
Sushi. And lots of it.
This is what I mean when I keep saying that all my friends are so freaking incredibly talented. My friends rock.
