Think Sideways Students Win Big

I missed passing on several of my How To Think Sideways students’ really cool recent writing news because things have been a bit hectic lately.

But I wanted to give them public cheers.

Cat Gerlach won the Lucky Agent Contest with her first HTTS class project, the novel Thicker Than Water.

Ieva (student ID) placed a short-story class project—and this is her first story published in English (her native language is Latvian).

Marti-v (student ID) placed third in the Pike’s Peak writing contest in the SF/F/H category with her HTTS novel.

Huge congratulations to all three students!

    Yay! Way to go, both to the contest winners–and to you, Holly, for a course capable of teaching to contest success level.

    Congratulations, all of you!

    By the way, the only American in that list is Marty-v. I’m German. So I’m doubly happy. Congrats again to all the others.
