Society of Professional Journalists award

This news is coming a little late, but I guess late is better than never.

Earlier this summer, I won a Society of Professional Journalists award for a Salt Lake magazine piece I did last year. I took home the second place prize in the Best Magazine Writing category for my story documenting Chinese diaspora living and running restaurants in small Utah desert towns.

Here’s a link to the Salt Lake magazine post about my win — which is actually kind of embarrassing since they copied what I posted on Facebook as my quote.

Also, here’s a link to a PDF of my story as it appeared in the magazine.
