We’re proud to announce that Thornetta: The Musical netted two awards during the 2013 Florida Writers Conference last weekend!! Dubbed the “Greatest Writers Conference on Earth,” the FWA Conference has a special banquet on the Saturday night (held on Oct 19th this year) of the three day conference, where the winners of the 2013 Royal Palm Literary Awards contest are announced.
It’s a night of great food and drinks and wonderful camaraderie. People dress to the nines and truly celebrate the art of writing. The FWA members are a cheerful and supportive bunch, which must be part of where the “Greatest” label had originated from.
As the evening progressed, we were flattered and excited to learn that Thornetta won First Place for Unpublished Stage Play. But when the final award of the night, the 2013 Dahris Clair Memorial Award for outstanding screenplay, teleplay, or stage play, also bore the name of “Thornetta: The Musical,” we were floored. We’re still sporting the after-award glow.
