Carmel Valley resident to be published in San Diego Writer’s Ink

Janice Coy


Longtime Carmel Valley resident Janice Coy will be published in “San Diego Writer’s Ink: A Year in Ink Vol. IV.” Coy’s short piece “Almost Gone” was chosen for the anthology, which will be released Feb. 15.

“I wrote the piece about my youngest daughter who was a senior at Torrey Pines High School at the time,” Coy said. Coy first presented the piece at an open mic night for short prose.
Anthology judges and editors were Laurel Corona, prolific author and humanities professor at San Diego City College, and Jericho Brown, nationally-recognized poet and assistant professor at the University of San Diego. San Diego Writer’s Ink is a nonprofit organization that nurtures writers and those wishing to explore the craft of writing, fosters a literary community, promotes literature and celebrates artistic diversity. More information about the anthology can be found at www.sandiegowriters.org.

Coy also recently completed writing her first novel, “A Grave in the Vegetable Garden,” a suspense story about mothers and daughters. It can be purchased at www.amazon.com or through her website www.janicecoy.com. She is at work on her second novel set on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a trek she undertook with her family in July 2010.

Coy contributed feature articles for many years to this newspaper group, and won a first place award for Original Writing Feature Story from the Independent Free Papers of America.
