I just discovered I’m short listed for the John Bilsland Literary Award for my short story Lunch Bucket Road, an ode of sorts to the factory workers who trudged to work each day in my Welland, Ontario hometown. The John Bilsland Literary Award page can be found on by clicking on here. I am one of five finalists in the non-fiction category. Great prize money, too, for 1st and 2nd so my chances are 40% of getting some cash. I will post the story on this site in a few weeks.
