Statewide honor

Sorensen recognized by POWA

The Post-Journal and Times Observer columnist Steve Sorensen, winner of the 2024 Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association Humor Writing Award, is congratulated by U.S. Army Colonel (retired) Grey Berrier II, POWA president.

RUSSELL — Steve Sorensen, columnist for the Times Observer and The Post-Journal, won the 2024 Humor Writing Award from the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association at their annual conference in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on May 18.

The honor was for a story titled, “How I Became a Hoop Snake Expert.”

“POWA has one of the most robust awards programs in the nation, and it’s an honor to be recognized from among so many writers with great talent,” Sorensen said. “I’ve been working on humor for a few years now, and this is the first time I’ve won in this category. I hope to write about 30 stories like this and collect them into a book, and this award encourages me to keep going. I especially want to thank the newspapers that publish my column, ‘The Everyday Hunter.’ It’s humbling to know that hunters and non-hunters alike read and value my writing, and they are the reason magazines and newspapers publish it.”

Sorensen lives in Russell and is a field contributor to Deer & Deer Hunting magazine. To learn more about Steve’s writing and speaking, go to www.EverydayHunter.com.
