After many weeks of creating, crafting, editing and revising, Lily submitted her entries in the new year and the news of her wonderful achievement has now been made public with the prize-giving. We would like to extend a huge congratulations to Lily! Our very talented Alum has been awarded not just one placement, but three Gold Keys and one Silver Key for her pieces: Like Clay; Ink Dry; An Elegy for the Kin-merican Anatomy and The Essence of an Intellectual.
