Bulletin: Creative Writing Department Announces Spring Contest Winners!

20 Apr

Congratulations to the 2011 winners of the Creative Writing Department’s annual poetry/fiction awards!  I had an entry for the fiction prizes, and while I’m disappointed I didn’t win, I can truly say the quality of the work by the winners is phenomenal.  I’ve been fortunate to have courses with a few of the students listed below, and their writing has always been top quality.  If I hadn’t devoted my weekend to tennis matches, I’d definitely be at the awards ceremony, which will be be held on Saturday, April 30, 4:30 p.m., in the Rice Hall Faculty Lounge Area.
