My story, “Goldhawk,” originally appeared as the winner of the 2016 Open Seasons Award for short fiction in The Malahat Review. You can read more about it here: http://web.uvic.ca/malahat/contests/open_season/2016_winner.html.
I am very grateful for the judges at PEN and for John Barton, the editor of The Malahat Review, for nominating my story.
