thank you, followers, blog, A Vase of Wildflowers, writing, reading, books, literary magazine, literary journal, L. N. Holmes

Thank you to everyone who has decided to follow my Twitter, Facebook, blog, or other social pages!

I’m one follower away from 200 on my blog and I wanted to do something special as a thank you. So I’m reaching out to you! If you have any suggestions I’d love to read them. Please remember I’m a Christian, so I might refuse to do some things—like streak naked downtown—based on my own moral values.

I look forward to your suggestions!

If you’re unfamiliar with A Vase of Wildflowers, and love reading and writing, I’d encourage you to check out my other blog posts and consider following.

As always, thanks for reading!

Graduating from Salem College in 2013, Holmes received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing with minors in English and History. Later she attended Creighton University, where she received her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in 2017. In addition to formal education, she’s actively sought out other opportunities to learn and has attended writing conferences, workshops, and readings in many different states.

She has been honored with the 2012 Katherine B. Rondthaler Award for Poetry, the 2013 Salem College President’s Prize for Creative Writing, and a first place for nonfiction in a literary journal from the North Carolina College Media Association in 2013. She was also a half-fellow in the Creighton University MFA program and her poem, “War Song,” was long-listed for the 2016 Wisehouse International Poetry Award. Her flash fiction, “Pheonix Fire Fight,” recently won the April 2018 contest at Apparition Literary Magazine.

A native of Wilmington, Ohio, Holmes currently lives in Bellevue, Nebraska. She’s married to her wonderful husband, Collin, and has three furry pets—a dog, Cattleya, and two cats, Rex and Hadassah. She’s a Christian who believes in protecting the planet, equal pay for women, and loving your neighbor.
