We are pleased to celebrate the news that Rose McCormick Brandon, a freelance writer for testimony, came out a winner at the 2018 Word Awards Gala in Toronto, Ontario. The Word Awards recognize the best work published in the previous year in many categories of writing, including novels, non-fiction books, articles, columns, poems, song lyrics, scripts and screenplays. Rose McCormick Brandon won an award in the "Short Feature" category for her article "When a Nation Prays: The prayer story behind the miracles of Dunkirk" which was published in the November/December 2017 issue.

The Word Awards was established by the Word Guild to encourage the pursuit of excellence in the art, craft, practice and ministry of writing and help to raise the profile of Canadian writers who are Christian. The ultimate vision is to positively influence individuals—and ultimately the Canadian culture—through life-changing words that bring God’s message of hope.
The Word Guild is a growing community of more than 325 Canadian writers, editors, speakers, publishers, booksellers, librarians and other interested individuals who are Christian. From all parts of Canada and many denominational and cultural backgrounds, we affirm a common statement of faith and are united in our passion for the written word.
Congratulations again, Rose!
