85810August 1, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Linda Heuring, a 1976 graduate of DePauw University, has placed third in the 2011 Elizabeth Simpson Smith Short Story Contest. She was honored for "Whatever Will Do." The competition is presented by the Charlotte (North Carolina) Writers' Club.

Daniel Handler, an author who also writes children's books under the pen name Lemony Snicket, judged the contest. Of Heuring's entry, he opined, "A good story is like a surprising vacation -- an energizing escape, preferably with a touch of decadence. 'Whatever Will Do' offers this both to its characters and to this delighted reader."
