I have received a nomination for the Western Writers of America 2018 Stirrup Award. The Stirrup Award is given annually for the best article to appear in Roundup Magazine, the official publication of Western Writers of America. My nomination is for my article “In 1866, the UP made tracks to the first Wild West Show,” that appeared in the April 2017 issue of Roundup Magazine [pictured here]. I wrote about the appearance of the article in a posting to my website on May 8, 2017. You can find that article in the archives section of this website or by clicking on the link provided at the end of this article.
There are 57 articles nominated, so the competition is humongous, to say the least. The authors of most of the articles are well established, famous western authors. Just to be nominated is a great honor. Thank you WWA and Roundup Magazine.
