For Seniors Only Editor Receives Gold Medal in the N. C. Senior Games/SilverArts
Top award for her humorous short story about a woman’s misadventures on a seniors bus tour
Judie Holcomb-Pack, For Seniors Only editor and writer, recently received a gold medal for her short story, “When Are You Too Old to Run Away from Home?” in the North Carolina Senior Games/SilverArts literary competition. Earlier this year she won first place in the Piedmont Games/SilverArts competition for her short story, as well as first place for her poem, “The Woman in the Red Dress,” qualifying her to represent Forsyth County in the State games. This is the second gold medal she has won in the SilverArts literary competition.
“I urge all seniors to write, whether it’s a journal, poem or story,” said Judie. “We all have many stories inside us just waiting for an opportunity to be shared with the world. Don’t worry about it being perfect; the first step is just to get it down on paper.”
Congratulations to Judie for this well-deserved honor!
