Local writer wins conference awards
‚Äā‚ÄāEureka Springs writer June Baldridge Freeman won two awards during the Ozark Creative Writers Conference, held at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks, Oct. 11 through 13. Freeman placed third in the Caudle Memorial Award contest with her essay, ‚ÄúWould You Say That Again?‚ÄĚ and won an Honorable Mention in the Tickle My Fancy Award contest with her entry, ‚ÄúColor Frenzy.‚ÄĚ
‚Äā‚Äā‚ÄúMy husband was the inspiration for ‚ÄėWould You Say That Again?‚Äô because he says that to me all the time,‚ÄĚ she joked after the ceremony.
‚Äā‚ÄāThis was the second year Freeman had attended the conference, which drew approximately 125 visitors from five different states. For a complete list of contest winners, visit www.ozarkcreativewriters.org.
