The North American Mature Publishers Association, at their annual Convention in October 2019, named two essays by Susan Goldfein as award-winners.  The competition was judged by the prestigious Missouri School of Journalism.

Lifestyles after 50, Florida; Susan Goldfein, “Grandma’s Guide to Gorgeous” and “The ‘Old Dog’ Days of Summer”

Goldfein doesn’t intend to fade into the sunset as she ages. Instead, she’s out for making a splash. She takes her readers along by offering fun and cool tips for upgrading one’s appearance and attitudes. And, it’s all practical, but really a recipe for living well. Her family’s pets are memorialized in the “Old Dog” column. They are lucky creatures. The column uses humor to describe the relationships as both owner and animals age. There’s a fine measure of sweetness in the writing.
