Creative Writing Contest Winner

Congratulations to Nolan Pike, one of our own students, whose story won the Creative Writing Contest sponsored by the Library and the Writing Initiatives Committee. The story about a beloved grandfather stood out among the entrants — all of them judged anonymously by a panel consisting of Corinne Gilroy from the Library and Susan Drain from the Department of English — for its spare narrative and telling use of detail.

Unfortunately Nolan could not attend the prize-giving ceremony, held in conjunction with the Celebrating Publishing Conference on October 16th. A cheque for $100 and a handsome certificate are awaiting Nolan’s next visit to the Library. Look to the Library’s blog in a day or two for more information about Nolan and the story.
