I would just like to inform you that your entry for the World Nomads & Rough Guides Travel Writing Scholarship to Southeast Asia has been shortlisted. Congratulations!
Check out the shortlist and stay tuned for our announcement of the winner on May 17th.
That is great, exciting news!
I do have a question about my title on the shortlist, which is listed as “Insight in Incense” by imperfectrhyme. The intended title was “Snake Blood,” as “Insight in Incense” was the name of my previous entry from last year’s contest and also the journal itself. (The link on the shortlist still goes to the correct entry.) I don’t know if this was intentional? I’d be happy to leave it as, but I thought I’d point it out in case it was a simple error.
Thank you so much for letting me know. I’ll stay tuned!
This is unexpected but certainly welcome. I might have a shot at going to Malaysia and jumpstarting a legit writing career.
