And the awards just keep coming for our own Michelle. Last month, she won 1st place for best personality profile at the LA Press Club for her 2012 cover story on Playground's Jason Quinn; it was the second year in a row she won that category. This past weekend, Michelle received another prestigious honor for her Quinn profile: 1st place in food writing for the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
It was the first time this infernal rag had won an award with AAN since 2008, which makes Michelle's win doubly impressive. Congrats to Michelle! And if you haven't been to Playground yet, what the hell are you waiting for?
