Xujun wins Tartt First Fiction Award
My pal Xujun Eberlein has just found out that her short story collection has won the Tartt First Fiction Award. I met Xujun last summer at Tin House, where we were in Jim Shepard's workshop. Her writing is wonderful, and I'm so happy to see her get this award.
Linera Lucas won the 2007 Crucible Fiction Prize and has had short stories published in Crucible, Boomtown Anthology, Pindeldyboz, VerbSap, VoiceCatcher Anthology and elsewhere. She has an MFA from Queens University of Charlotte and has taught creative writing in Seattle at the University of Washington Women’s Center and at Richard Hugo House.
