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.
