And the winner is ...

Congratulations to Sylvia Ney, whose name was selected to win the 2012 issue of Bylines, the writer’s desk calendar created by Sylvia Forbes to help writers stay organized, inspired and focused. Sylvia, if you will email me with your address at, I will put that in the mail ASAP.

Thanks to everyone who left comments on my blog, I appreciate your support and interesting comments!

And don’t forget, Bylines is currently accepting submissions for the 2013 edition. The deadline is March 1 for succinct, personal stories about the writing life, including success, rejection, motivation, tough lessons and freelancing. Humor is welcomed. Complete guidelines are available at

Write soon,


  1. Way to go Sylvia! Bayou Writers' Group members continue their winning streak. Awesome! Thanks for this opportunity, Mary.

  2. Congrats to Sylvia! It's so appropriate that a "Sylvia" should win "Sylvia's" calendar! :)
