Student Writers Enter First Katharine Brush Writing Contest

Fifty-two students submitted flash fiction pieces for the first annual Katharine Brush Creative Writing Contest, sponsored by Loomis' Writing Initiatives Committee.

Each submission is 1,000 words or fewer and begins with one of three leads originally written by American novelist Katharine Brush and preserved in her writing notebooks that are now part of the Katharine Brush collection in the Loomis Chaffee Archives.

A panel of judges made up of authors and teachers will read and deliberate on the fiction pieces, and winners will be announced in the spring.
