Congratulations to Rion

Recent fiction graduate, Rion Scott, just had a story place 2nd runner-up in the Pan African Literary Forum's Special Contest for emerging writers of Africa and the Diaspora. It looks like they haven't yet updated the website, but it looks like Rion's story's placing in the contest will earn him a free trip to Africa to participate in the conference.

You can find info about the Forum here. To give you an idea, Helon Habila is listed on the faculty page for this year's Forum, along with Yusef Komunyakaa.

If you know Rion, send him an email. If you don't know Rion, maybe visit his site and leave a nice comment.
