I’m in much the same predicament as Sarah. I missed the CG Writing Challenge while sequestered to finish my M.A. thesis. I would have loved to participate, but will wait for the next go-rouund and happily read the stories that did make the cut. Thanks for your hard work on CG, alto, and now that I’ve finished grad school I’m excited to plunge whole-heartedly into writing and publishing on Medium for the first time.
