gritLIT Non-Fiction Prize

In the busyness of gritLIT a few weeks ago, I neglected to post about this: I am honoured to receive first place in gritLIT’s non-fiction competition. The winning essay, “How to Crochet a Mourning Shawl,” examines some of the history of crochet, and my experiences with this hobby, my relationship with my mothers and mourning her death, and women’s work in the domestic sphere.
