Anne Hawkinson, Seminole State College of Florida coordinator of faculty credentials, has won first place for Unpublished Chapter Book in the Florida Writers Association (FWA) Royal Palm Literary Awards (RPLA). This is her third RPLA win in five years.
Hawkinson’s winning entry, “Huckleberry Heart,” tells the story of Paddy and his Grandpa Irl, and the courage and determination Paddy displays when Grandpa falls ill.
The awards were announced at the 2013 Florida Writers Conference RPLA banquet in October at the Orlando Marriot Lake Mary. The literary contest, which included about 37 categories, received more than 300 entries. The RPLA competition recognizes excellence in unpublished and published works submitted by members of the FWA.
Hawkinson’s works “The Red Door” and “Shula” won RPLA honors in 2008 and 2009 respectively. To learn more about Hawkinson’s projects and awards, visit annehawkinson.com.
