St. John’s fiction writer, and all around great guy, Chad Pelley was awarded the $2,000 Cuffer Prize for short fiction last night. Congrats to him for his hard work in the writing and having it pay off big time.
I just picked up Chad’s book, Away From Everywhere, today and look forward to getting into it as soon as possible. I’ve heard some wonderful things about it. It’s great to see this Cuffer win fall just shortly after the release of his novel, which will hopefully get the word out about this promising young novelist/short story writer.
