  • Victoria Hubbell of Lake Ozark received the Sue Ellen Hudson Excellence in Writing Award at the Tennessee Mountain Writers annual conference in April for her entry "Mount Everest.”
    The entry had earned Hubbell first-place honors in the Inspirational category. The Sue Ellen Hudson award is a "best of all categories" recognition made each year in memory of one of the conference's founding members. First-place winners in each of the contest's seven competition categories are candidates for the award. As this year's recipient, Hubbell received $100 and a trophy.
    The 26th annual conference featured principal workshop leaders Crystal Wilkinson, Fiction; Scott Huler, Nonfiction; Helen Hemphill, Writing for Young People; Joseph Bathanti, Poetry; and Kate Larken, Editing and Publishing. Wilkinson was also the banquet speaker. The conference was funded in part under an agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
    The Tennessee Mountain Writers' 27th annual conference is scheduled for April 9-11, 2015, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Oak Ridge.
    Tennessee Mountain Writers is a non-profit, non-political organization that promotes Tennessee literary arts and supports the work of Tennessee writers. Its goal is to provide opportunities for people interested in the craft of writing to become better writers. Membership is open to all writers interested in furthering these objectives, regardless of geographic location.
