Elizabeth McQuern in the Indianapolis Star

Surely, giant clouds of Pulitzer prizes will be swirling over my apartment building any day now.

That's great. It reads very well. If I was on the Pulitzer committee, I would put in a good word for you. Not many of the Pulitzer winning writers do stand up as well.

I kept looking for your name in the body of the text. It took me forever to figure out that you were the author. Good article!

Shiny and golden, hmm... Maybe some chocolate pirate gold coins? Arr!

Congrats! It's a great feeling to be published.

Thanks, everyone! I'd be happy with anything shiny and golden. Or smeared with ink.

Aside from my high school paper all those years ago, this represents my first print job. My stuff in Chicago Magazine and Builder/Architect will be out soon, but this is it for now.

...and they gave me two new assignments yesterday!!

Congratulations Bella,
Fine article and I"m sure there will be a bunch more.
I worked for non-profits for 6 years, so it was especially interesting to me. Of course, I sometimes have worked for for profits that essentially were non-profits. It is a culture unto itself, particularly in D.C.

Woo Hoo! Great piece, thought so when I read it the first time.
I joined the non-profit world after a long career in the sometimes-for-profit land of restaurant management.
I came to your blog via Carmi's.
I live in Indianapolis, and dabble in writing --NUVO and the Broad Ripple Gazette for me.
Congratulations on the Star gig!

Thanks, Chance!

And thanks, Nora! Thanks for visiting from Carmi's blog.

You had the pleasure of reading the print version of my article, which I still haven't gotten my hands on yet.

Indianapolis is such a small city - I'd bet twenty bucks we have acquaintances in common. Any links to your work I could check out?
