Fourth Annual Creative Writing Competition

The Department of English hosted its 4th annual Creative Writing Competition this Semester. Eight students participated, primarily in the essay and poetry writing categories. The topic for this year dealt with promoting diversity in the Lebanese society. Khaled Rajeh received first prize for poetry and Yara El-Murr received first prize for essay writing. An awards reception was held on April 19 in Nicol 222 at which participation certificates and awards were given. This year, each participant received a voucher from Antoine’s bookshop as an award for the effort they put in the writing competition. The department looks forward to embracing this tradition and hopes to welcome more participants in the coming year.
