He also believed that humor writing was a craft, and much admired those who excelled at it. Bill loved a tall tale or a surprise ending.
In his honor, his family is establishing an annual prize to be given for humor writing. Short stories and essays are both encouraged, fiction or non-fiction doesn't matter as much as the love and craft that goes into the telling.
It will mean a lot to remember Bill in this positive, ongoing way, and to support others who use their creativity. The family thanks you from their hearts.
