Spring Writing Competition Awards (By Stephanie Stewart, English Instructor)

Thank you to everyone who participated in our first annual SMCA Spring Writing Competition. We were so impressed by the thought and creativity that poured into the entries, which made it a very difficult decision!

Our heartiest congratulations go to:
  1. First place: KG Morton's poem "Earthly Pleasures"
  2. Second Place: Eli Arguello's "Collection of Haikus"
  3. Third Place: Jillian Getman's reflective essay "A Mandatory Pause"
  4. Fourth Place: Mia Pileggi's untitled short story
This year’s theme, as you might guess, was “Quarantine.” From closing school to cancelling sporting events to family bonding to missing friends to inventing new ways to spend our time, we have all been significantly impacted by the shutdown. We welcomed a variety of writing genres and divided the entries into two categories: Creative Writing and Expository. 

Winners will appear in ERIN, our SMCA Literary Magazine!
