Coast article wins prizes

My article 'Unembedded in Afghanistan' for the Coast Magazine has won this year's Canadian Association of Journalist's prize for feature writing. The article is a long-form version of my first trip through Afghanistan, where I spent a month traveling alone through the country disguised as an Afghan. The Coast has a write-up on the award. The story also won a silver prize for Enterprise Reporting in this year's Atlantic Journalism Awards. This is my second year in a row winning CAJ and AJA awards.
