No, I didn’t win anything. But I read my entry, the short story, “Hustler Boy” at BJs in da Bywater, along with some other stories, both fiction and nonfiction. I will submit the story elsewhere and see what happens. Remember, the Bloodjet Poetry Series hosted by Megan Burns, is every Wednesday, 8:00 pm, BJs, 4301 Burgundy Street, NOLA, 70117.
