Come blow our own horn

The Association of Alternative Newsweeklies is holding its annual convention this weekend in Philadelphia, an event that includes announcement of winners in the annual national contest for writing and design.

Some good news for the Arkansas Times, which competes against weeklies with circulation below 55,000:

Two first-place awards -- for our website and for David Koon's feature on the UA's gem of a writer and blogger, Mohja Kahf.

Two second-place awards -- in special sections, for our edition on the 50th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis, and in political columns, for a selection of Ernest Dumas' work.
