Congrats to the most excellent and radiant Heather Fowler, who emerged victorious. Well done, Heather.
The superb and stylish Jim Ruland was also a judge. It’s worth noting that at last year's LDM in SD, Jim resoundingly kicked my ass (and by that I mean we both read and he won the round, eventually going on to become the night’s winner).
It was great to see some familiar faces as well as meet some new writers (yes, I don't get out enough).
And I think I’ll have to stop saying there isn't much of a writing scene/community in San Diego. Because, actually, there is.
