greber award laugh

Last weekend I was honoured to receive the 2014 Dave Greber Freelance Writers Award for social justice writing. The award was presented at LitFest in Edmonton for a “A Quiet Slaughter,” published in Hazlitt magazine. It’s the story of a courageous young man, his flight through the forests of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, and the war of vengeance he escaped.
