Short Fiction Contest Winner Announced

The winner of Trent University's Continuing Education Literary Short Fiction Writing Contest is Robert Mills of Peterborough with his story "The Train."

The Continuing Education Department held the writing contest this fall to celebrate the launch of their new Certificate Program in Creative Writing.

Judges Michelle Berry and Jonathan Bennett, both published authors and Instructors in the Certificate Program, chose the winner.

Ms. Berry and Mr. Bennett commented that, "Robert Mills' winning short story, 'The Train,' is written with an assured and mature voice. The casual tone is quiet and sensitive at first, but soon becomes lit with suspense."

In addition to having his story published in the Examiner, Mr. Mills will be automatically admitted to the Certificate Program in Creative Writing and enrolled, at no cost, in the course Reading Like a Writer. Author Charles Foran will instruct this course, which begins November 7.

For more information on the Certificate Program in Creative Writing, or other non-credit courses in the Continuing Education department, visit the website or call 748-1229 for your free brochure.
