Most Improved Writer: Step Ahead
Callie Brannon


We write for many reasons. We write for the pleasure of clarifying our thoughts and thinking through our ideas. We also write to share and convey. We text friends, we email family, and we publish discoveries that inform a community of scholars. And, yes, we also write to complete assignments. In every case, we create a permanency that lets others understand our insights and revelations, regardless of whether those expressions speak to the mundane or revolutionary.

The 2017 Writing Awards give you the opportunity to celebrate your prose. Participating is a great way to build your resume or C.V. Long-term success requires evidence, and winning a writing award will confirm your written communication skills. Winners will also have the opportunity to archive their work on DigitalFGCU so that anyone (in the WORLD) can access and read your words. Finally, winners will have the opportunity to publish their work in the Mangrove Review (FGCU’s journal for the creative arts) or Aquila (FGCU’s student research journal).
