Men, Manuscripts, and MONEY!!!!!!

I’m proud to announce that I recently won the First Annual MANDREW’S Blissenblog Essay Contest!
Andrew Blissenbach, a great chronicler of modern masculinity in all its glory and errors, called for essays on his favorite subject, so I sat down and started writing about my dad. Eventually, I touched on dinosaurs, Batman, and shark attacks to compose an essay titled “Dead Man’s Float”–which, to my surprise, ended up winning! There were some really great entries with more precise and astute things to say than I, so click on over to the contest page and read the finalists (along with my entry at the bottom).
While you’re there, check out some of MANDREW’s own awesome essays, and then get ready to enter your best next year; I could get used to this getting paid for my writing thing, so I’m already scheming on my next championship essay.
