Local UTM students win writing awards
Stanton Watson, a senior English major from Martin, and Misty Dunlap, a graduate teaching student from Dresden, were both awarded honors in the 2013 Writing Awards, sponsored by the University of Tennessee at Martin Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages.
Watson received an honorable mention in the personal fiction and creative non-fiction category for his work titled “Those Memories Are Not My Own.”
Dunlap won the Robert G. Cowser Poetry Award for her poetry portfolio, which included “Ventricular Septal Defect,” “Helen Abducts Paris” and other poems.
Both students presented their award-winning selections at a student reading on April 2, hosted by UT Martin’s Hortense Parrish Writing Center.
