We are excited to announce Chelsey Clammer, our Managing Editor and Nonfiction Editor, was awarded the Owl of Minerva Award 2014! Once a year, the women’s literary journal Minerva Rising awards $500 to one woman writer in order to help provide her with financial support to further her writing endeavors. With this scholarship, Chelsey will be organizing a women’s writing retreat that will take place in a cabin in the middle of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. For the most up-to-date information on this retreat, please visit her website at www.chelseyclammer.com.
