The gray winter weather can seem endless. Yet the green shoots of spring will eventually arrive, and then the city’s gardens and parks will dazzle us with their brilliant blossoms and blooms. When that happens, I hope we can all take a few moments to stand in awe of nature.
Our students have a similar ability to awe us. Their dedication and talent can result in some amazing works. SNL Writing hopes that you will encourage your students to submit their outstanding work (academic essays, creative writing, poems, stories, APs, ILPs, Capstone projects, and Digication ePortfolios) to the 2016-2017 Writing Showcase.
For every submission, a new flower will be added to the tree in the lobby of the SNL Offices (suite 1400, 14. E. Jackson.) All submitters will be invited to show how their writing has blossomed at the Writing Showcase Live event on April 20, 2017. Writing Showcase winners will be recognized at the annual SNL Spring Awards Luncheon.
Encourage your students to submit their best work! Application forms can be found at http://snl.depaul.edu/student-
