Cameron University student wins award at creative writing festival

Cameron University student Casey Brown was honored with one of three undergraduate awards at the recent Scissortail Creative Writing Festival, marking the third consecutive year a Cameron student was honored with an award. She was among eight Cameron students whose work was selected for the festival’s Page One Literary Art Gallery, which exhibits a single page of original work in any creative writing genre.  Brown’s submission was “Passive Voice,” a flash fiction story.

Other Cameron students whose works were selected were Philip Harrington, Cache; Amanda Goemmer, Elgin; and Zach Ellis, Gilberto Nunez, Devon Shannon and Carson Stringham, all of Lawton/Fort Sill.

Harrington’s “The Lobby” and Ellis’ “Home” were exhibited in the fiction category. Shannon’s “Young Staffer” was selected in the nonfiction category. Nunez’ “Baking” was a flash fiction selection, and Goemmer’s “Rearranging the Uniform” and Stringham’s “Three Hearts” were selected among works of poetry.

More than 400 college students from Oklahoma and neighboring states submitted original works.
