Junior Madeleine Barnes Wins Writing Contest
Department of English News, April 19, 2011
Junior Madeleine Barnes has won The Women's Press Club Gertrude Gordon Writing Contest funded by the Pittsburgh Foundation. The $2000 prize was awarded April 16th at a dinner with The Women's Press Club.
The contest involved all participants interviewing the featured speaker in a one hour session. Following the interview, each participant had two hours to write a feature news article, and the best entries were then selected on a blind-judging system by three local journalists.
Madeleine is pursing a Bachelor of Humanities and Arts, with a focus on Creative Writing and Art. Congratulations, Madeleine!
