Happy October everyone! We are pleased to announce that, with your help, Elisabeth Sharp McKetta has been chosen as the winner of our very first Simply Stated Blogger Contest. Her story of her unexpected friendship with Hope Davis, whom she met in a memoir writing class, made us laugh, and won your votes.
We also want to give a special thank you to all of our finalists for sharing their stories with us. (You can take a look back at all of their stories here.)
Elisabeth will be blogging with us all month. Check back tomorrow for her first post.
