Honors College Pat Conroy Writing Contest
Only twenty-eight students from across the state are invited to attend. Our finalists are Lori Able, Charish Cauley, Kayla Cordero, Drayton Rowe, Sara Rodriguez, Alex Lybrand, John Owens and Breckon Gardner. These students will attend a second round hosted at the University of South Carolina, where they will be given the opportunity to meet Margory Wentworth, South Carolina Poet Laureate, and Maggie Schein, author of Story River Books.
They will then compete in the second round, where they will be given 40 minutes to complete a well thought essay on an entirely new topic. Both essays will factor into the judgment and decision for the winners. Pat Conroy and Margory Wentworth will be the judges of the essays and poems. The first place winner will receive a $1000 prize.
