Alameda Poet Laureate Julia Park Tracey has won two awards from the San Francisco Press Club.

Tracey was recognized in the entertainment and blogs/commentary categories at the 38th Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards on Saturday, December 5th, in Foster City.

She won a first place award for a feature she wrote for Sweatpants & Coffee, an online magazine and another for a post on her own blog.

Tracey told Action Alameda News, “It’s nice to be recognized for something I do that is generally un-lauded: Sitting alone in my dining room writing for weeks on end, then running after a story, writing frenetically under deadline while having a massive panic attack, seeing the story go live — and then it lands like a lead balloon. The struggle is real.”

The press club received 398 submissions from 11 Bay area counties, competing for 200 awards; the contest was judged by press clubs in Cleveland, Florida, New Orleans, Orange County and Kern County.
