Tribal College Journal has officially announced the winners of its annual student writing contest. Over 70 students submitted entries in the categories of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, making the selection process extremely competitive and difficult.
TCJ was honored to have Irvin Morris (Diné) serve as the 2014 guest editor. Author of the acclaimed book, From the Glittering World, Morris has taught at Diné College (Tsaile, AZ) and Cornell University. He currently serves as chair of the Arts and Humanities Department at Navajo Technical University (Crownpoint, NM) and is the architect of the university’s new Bachelor of Fine Arts program in creative writing.
The winners of this year’s contest, as well as those students earning honorable mention, will be formally recognized at this year’s American Indian Higher Education Consortium student conference in Billings, Montana. The event will take place at the awards banquet on Tuesday evening, March 18, at the Holiday Inn Grand’s ballroom.
