As if penning the original -and still best - piece of publishing chick-lit ever, The Best of Everything, wasn't enough, the late Rona Jaffe created a foundation that annually hands out grants of $25,000 to "women writers of talent and promise in the early stages of their writing careers." This year, the prize went to a poet, two novelists, a short-story writer, and two essayists, one of whom is "currently writing about such topics as jellyfish, peas and lizards." [Yahoo]
