WRITING: “Come Blow Your Horn”

November 24th, 2010 by susan


I’m honored and thrilled to have been named as the winner of the 8th Glass Woman Prize and am deeply grateful to Beate Sigriddaughter for offering this chance to women writers to give voice to women everywhere. I’m saddened by the inspiration for this story, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who is still facing the possibility of a horrid death under Iranian law. I hope my story, and the reputation of the Glass Woman Prize will bring attention to her plight and maybe help her in her fight for survival. http://www.sigriddaughter.com/GlassWomanPrize.htm
