Award NSNC

Darcy won 1st Place in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists for 2014 in the Blog & Multimedia Category (100K monthly visitors or less). Judge Mae Israel reviewed her writing:

“Darcy Perdu writes with wit and clear-eyed energy, with just the right pace and rhythm, eliciting hearty chuckles and nods of solidarity with her tales about raising children and family life. She packages her columns under the label “So Then…Stories,” and plunges lightheartedly into crisp storytelling like a friendly next door neighbor who stops you at the mailbox and lassos you with such engaging language and good humor that you look forward to the next day’s adventure.”
