winning essay

Thanks to Kerry Clare and her “Pickle Me This” blog, which I just read to the left, I found out too late for my students that Chatelaine magazine had a competition encouraging readers to send essays. The winning one is a good personal essay, just the kind of thing we do in class. Next time, dear students, let’s keep our eye on magazines and make sure you send in your best work.

Here’s the winning entry:
Heidi Reimer’s winning essay about female friendship has been published in Chatelaine.

And now, off to the tropical delights of Ottawa.
