The local papers are reporting that a Seattleite is the proud winner of the 2010 Bulwer-Lytton prize for the Best in Truly Dreadful writing. Her prize winning entry makes clever, albeit revolting, use of those essential elements of great literature: passion, romance, small caged mammals, and their accessories.
Congratulations to Molly Ringle and the other writers whose prosodic efforts so richly deserve their dishonorable mentions.
We interrupt our demanding summer schedule of sunscreen application to bring you news of yet more achievements by our students. Cody Tacderas (’12), an English major/Gender Studies minor, has been awarded a competitive and substantial LGBT scholarship by the Greater Seattle Business Association. The association’s vision is “A vibrant global economy strengthened through the full participation of diverse local communities” and its mission is “To combine business development, leadership and social action to expand economic opportunities for the LGBT Community and those who support equality for all.”
Watch for a profile of Cody and his fellow scholars on their website next semester.
