We are pleased to announce that Remington Relick has been awarded the Capote scholarship for 2021-22! Remington was chosen by Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, one of our Spring visiting writers. You can check out a recording of her talk here, and read our piece on it here. Clapsaddle had the following to say about Relick's work,
"There are no cheap tricks or convenient twists lurking for the reader...Instead, the author has crafted a tension that feels so intimate it compels us to ask ourselves the silent questions..."
Additionally, we'd like to extend our congratulations to the runners-up, Shay Vaughn and Zoe Benfield! The University Bookstore has awarded both of them a copy of The Prettiest Star, the award-winning new novel by another of our Spring visiting writers, Carter Sickels. Check out his talk here, and our piece on it here.
