Poetry Contest Winners

First Place Winner: Alejandro Pérez
Prize: $20 Amazon.com gift card
Winning Submission:

Roads
Road to the left, road
to the right, walk down the middle,
with one foot in each.

Sky
The sky is cold, it
looks warm from afar, touch it
and your hand will freeze.

Second Place Winner: Monjori Mukerjee
Prize: $15 Amazon.com gift card
Winning Submission:

Why I write, you ask?
I write for me;
to find my deepest thoughts,

# Why I write?
I write for therapy,
to thank the unknown for what I got.

Occasionally I write to hate on Trump,
or the next white aged man who tells me what
to do
with my body and my uterus.


Celebrate the National Day on Writing with the EWC!

Do you enjoy writing?
Are you curious about other writing systems?
Are you interested in what the linguistic landscape looks like in other cultures?
Do you like pizza?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are sure to enjoy this event!

The Emory Writing Center will be celebrating the National Day on Writing from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm in Centro Latino (AMUC 116).

The celebration will include:

• Writing contests with prizes for the winners (haikus and two-minute poetry)
• Live calligraphy display (learn about Chinese and Japanese writing systems. Get your name written in Tibetan!)
• Photographic exhibition of linguistics landscapes around the globe
• Good music and conversations
• Complimentary pizza and refreshments

We hope to see you there! Even if you can’t make it to the live event, drop by the Writing Center (Callaway N212) between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm for light refreshments.

Be sure to follow us on social media, and tell us—in whatever language(s) you like—why you write!
