I’m humbled, grateful and super excited to announce that my feature article “When the Call Came” (online title “Rescue in the Atlantic”) for Yachting magazine was named the best article in an enthusiast/hobby magazine at tonight’s Folio: Eddie Awards in New York City.
And I earned an honorable mention for several articles that I wrote for Soundings, in the category of best range of work by a single author.
What a night! I’m over the moon—and I want to say thanks here publicly to all the excellent editors and designers I worked with on these stories, including Patrick Sciacca, Kelley Sanford, Eric Powell, Mary South and Michael Labella. Awards like these, while one person’s name is at the top, really should belong to the whole team. It’s always a team effort behind the scenes.
Congratulations to all of tonight’s other winners, including Angler’s Journal, where I’m on retainer as an editor. That magazine earned the top award for best full issue of an enthusiast/hobby magazine.
