About $30,000 at today's exchange rate.

Well done her!  I missed the entry date again - really should keep an eye on these things as I like to write short stories.

$30,000 for a short story? Wow. Who needs a novel? Or two...

Carrie, the admission open again in November. I'd get writing right now.
