UE Students Win Awards in Creative Writing Contest


Three creative writing students at the University of Evansville have received awards in the 2012 Southern Literary Festival Student Writing Contest.

Miranda Stinson of Bloomington, Indiana, won first place in the poetry category for her poem “Renovation,” and “The Fire Dancers” by Danielle Weeks of Connersville, Indiana, won an honorable mention in the same category. Lacey Conley of Kendallville, Indiana, won first place in the creative nonfiction category for her essay “The Way the Catwalks.”

These students will participate in a public reading at the festival with other Student Writing Contest winners. The Southern Literary Festival runs from March 29-31 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
