We’re Proud as Punch! Susan Yee Wins Creative Writing Award

A couple of years ago, a very young and recent graduate from USP handed me a short story that immediately pulled me in and that left me with baited breathe and tremendous admiration.  Susan Yee was hired on the spot and over the years, she has grown to become an impressive professional with multiple skillsets and a depth that belies her years.

No matter what challenge or responsibility Susan has taken on in the professional world, she has always performed admirably, but deep down, a writer will always be a writer and will ‘always’ have their own stories to tell.  Susan Yee is a gifted writer and an equally great person and we are very, very lucky to have her as part of our team. While many of our clients may get to have Susan assist in their story telling, we hope most of all, that she continues to tell her own stores as well.  They are special and they truly deserve a wide audience.

Congratulations Susan for your winning submission in the “Rest of the Pacific” category of the 2017 Samoa Observer Tusitala Story Competition.  Your story, “The Promise” was intimate, compelling and yet, remarkably universal.

For those of you who would like to read Susan’s story, “The Promise”  It can be downloaded here.
