The London Society’s Love Letters to London Writing Contest

All the winners together.

Twenty years ago I visited London for the first time with my family. Since then, I’ve been returning and returning to the city, now with my own children in tow. It’s my favorite city in the world, and so I was thrilled to see a call for entries to a writing contest called Love Letters to London hosted by The London Society. My 500-word entry called “City of Forking Paths” was shortlisted for the international category, and this past week I got to go to London and attend the awards presentation, where I won first prize. It was amazing to hear so many writers of all ages describing what London means to them, and I’m chuffed to bits (as the English say) to be a winner. To read more and download my entry, click here.
