futurescapes-semifinalistMany moons ago I saw a call for submissions for the Futurescapes Writing Contest. The theme Cities of Empowerment caught my attention because I have a deep love of architecture, and a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. Reading the details, they were looking for writers to “Envision how a city, thirty years from now, can create a civic experience which virtually eliminates what today we consider “disabilities.”” My teenager has special needs, so I’ve put a lot of thought into how she will be able to participate in society when she grows up.

I just found out last night that I am one of ten semifinalists in the contest! I am so honored that my story received this recognition. It will be at least a few weeks before I find out whether I’m a finalist. Wish me luck!
