Spring / Summer Updates

Hello all. Well I apparently need to start looking in my spam folder for grant and contest updates because it seems I missed a couple! Thanks to Glenna Gordon and Kai Loffelbein for filling me in :)

I was recently named in the top 20 for the Oscar Barnack Newcomer Award for my work Me Against my Brother from Lebanon, and as a silver award winner in the PX3 Press/Feature Story catagory for my Rise of the Houthis.

I’ve been in Minnesota for the summer: running, sunning, and photographing – mostly my beautiful sister – and likely heading back in mid-August.

Miss Morgan Lee

Morgan Potter – best sister/friend, amazing model / designer / actress and all around cool cat.

Check out her blogs on life and movie reviewing, and her quirky instagram of small town life in Windom and the city in Minneapolis.

Makeshift Mountains, where Minnesota meets Yemen on the outskirts of Windom.
