In 2010, I was a finalist at the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference for my essay, Surrender.  The essay was published in UNT's literary journal, Ten Spurs, in 2011.

After attending the San Juan Writer's Workshop, I decided to submit an essay to Creative Nonfiction for their "Silence Kills" issue.  Much to my surprise, I was a finalist in their contest and in addition to being published in Creative Nonfiction issue 33, I was also published in Silence Kills: Speaking out and Saving Lives.  My essay is You Have the Right to Remain Silent.  This was my first time being published and I was incredibly excited!
