Work hard and good things happen. And the Creative Writing Department has had some good things happen. Like five U.S. Presidential Scholars in the past three years. Like seven national Scholastic Gold Portfolio Winners. (Each one received a check for a cool $10,000.) Like numerous finalists in the national Young Arts/NFAA writing competition. Like first places in the Southern Voices competition, the Bennington Young Writers Competition and the Patricia Grodd Poetry Prize, sponsored by The Kenyon Review.
And our students head off to continue their careers at colleges and universities around the country, like Princeton, Kenyon, NYU, Harvard, USC Honors College, Bard, Wofford, Georgetown, to name just a few on a long, long list.
