Elizabeth Barsotti, a junior majoring in Creative Writing and Interdisciplinary Art, has been awarded the 2008 Charles C. Dawe Memorial Award to Encourage Creativity and Innovation in Publishing. The $2000 award will be used to produce prototypes of an original publication, tentatively titled “Mint.” The project is a trading card/literary journal hybrid designed to extend the reach and appeal of poetry beyond traditional literary audiences. The faculty sponsor for the project is Professor Gerald Costanzo. The Dawe Award is made possible through an endowment provided by the family of Vanessa Altman-Siegel (BA, Professional Writing, 1998) in recognition of the writing and publication opportunities she experienced through the English Department.
