The great writer Claire Davis was my first professor in the program, and she worked with me on the story, and encouraged me to submit it.
I was just learning about the whole submission process, and starting to receive the inevitable stream of rejections, when I received a wonderful note from the editor Andrew Milward, informing me it was a finalist for the prize. It was wonderful to have something accepted that early—especially from such a great magazine—and it really enhanced my confidence.
