Marylhurst Students Place First in Writing Contest

Marylhurst students Carrie Padian, Holly Dickinson and Darwin Riviere won first prize in the 2012 Sledgehammer Writing Contest under the team category.

The Sledgehammer contest is aimed at "shattering writer's block." Writers converge at a central location in Portland, at a specified time, to receive their first writing prompt and scavenger hunt clues. From there they head out to several locations around the city to gather all four writing prompts, and they have 36 hours to write the best fiction piece they can.

Carrie, Holly and Darwin entered the team category as The Novelettes and took first prize with their short story, Life in Knots.
