Kusnic Named Semifinalist in 1st Annual Norman Mailer Competition

Peter Kusnic (Senior, Creative Writing) has earned recognition as a national semifinalist in the first annual Norman Mailer College Writing Award for Creative Nonfiction competition. 

From the National Council of Teachers of English:

Norman Mailer produced extraordinary writing in many genres, and he was a true pioneer in the emerging realm of creative nonfiction. Thus, evaluation criteria for this award reflected qualities of writing he pursued across a lifetime: originality; insight; clear voice and style; artful arrangement of elements and materials; and overall aesthetic, emotional, or intellectual effect. Out of the extraordinarily rich pool of
work submitted, [Kusnic's] was deemed to show considerable promise, and fell within the top 3% of entries received from College writers.

Congratulations!
