One of our favorite One Story interns from the past, Hailey Reissman (you might remember some of her ‘From the Trenches’ posts) has been awarded the Sophie Kerr Prize, the largest prize given to an undergraduate for writing!! I made a prediction this would happen years ago, when I first met Hailey and read her work at Washington College, and I’m over the moon that it all came true. She is not only an amazing writer, she is an amazing person. Dedicated, hard-working and true. Hailey is coming to our Literary Debutante Ball, so we’ll be able to raise a glass to her on Friday. Until then, read this great interview with the Baltimore Sun.
