Happy Halloween, everyone!
Remember the Guild Literary Complex Prose Awards contest? Well, today we are very excited to announce that current M.A.W.P. student Lisa Applegate has been selected as one of 3 semifinalists for the 2011 Prose Award for Short Non-Fiction. Not only that, but Lisa’s piece is an edited version of one she wrote for Brenda Fowler’s class on writing in Chicago last winter quarter.
That means Lisa will be reading her submitted piece at the recognition event, and that she is still in the running to receive this year’s award and cash prize. The event will be held this Wednesday, Nov. 2nd at 7:30pm at the Chopin Theater 1543 W. Division. The recognition event is open to the public and admission is $7 general/$5 students. Attendees will enjoy a lively evening of prose and music, and of course be able to vote in the Audience Favorite portion of the evening, so if you’re free, come out and support Lisa and enjoy a great literary event.
Once again, congratulations and good luck to Lisa Applegate!
