This week, The Washington Pastime is proud to announce that tomorrow’s weekly fiction will be our 2012 Promising Young Author Champion, whose story was chosen from among hundreds submitted throughout our PYA Chapters.
PYA story finalists are chosen by chapter support and editorial staff, and sent to The Washington Pastime to be judged for our PYA Prize, which includes publication.
This year, our prize winner, Brian Smith, comes from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. His story was selected by the outstanding Chelsea Burris, and we’re very excited to be featuring it on both our website and our 2013 Collections, to be available this summer.
Look for the story at the usual time — 10 a.m. — tomorrow, and let us know what you think!
If you’re interested in bringing the PYA to your high school, college or university for 2013, or in becoming a standalone member, contact us!
