Haywood Community College’s 2015 Creative Writing Contest recently named two student winners in three categories. Lyndsey Long, Associate in Arts student, claimed first place in the fiction category with her work titled “Moth Dust.” Associate in Arts student Leanne M. Marquis won first place in the Poetry category with “Invisible Me.” The Non-Fiction category was also claimed by Marquis for “Beauty in the Cracks.”

Winners were awarded $100 and their work was published in the 2015 issue of Haywood Press. A panel of HCC faculty and staff selected the winners from more than 50 entries. The HCC Foundation generously provided the funds for this contest.
