PWE Poster Winners Announced!

Yesterday, the Professional Writing and Editing (PWE) program hosted the biannual PWE Poster Exhibit, where PWE capstone students showcase their writing and editing internship work for the university community.

Judges' and attendees' votes have been tallied, and the winners of the top poster awards are:

First Place: Kelsey Young, FiT Publishing
Second Place:  Emma Carte, Friends of Deckers Creek

Congratulations to all of the interns on their accomplishments this term, including:

  • Jarred Bowers, who demonstrated his on-the-job learning at the WVU Office of Accessibility Services.
  • Emma Carte, who wrote several successful grant proposals for Friends of Deckers Creek, winning funds from organizations such as Patagonia to advocate for remediation of Richard Mine.
  • Jessica Hamon, who researched subjects from psychobilly to soundscapes for WVU professor of musicology Travis Stimeling.
  • Alicia Manley, who streamlined parish communications, improved document usability and redesigned documents for Trinity Episcopal Church.
  • Kelsey Young, whose work spanned from proofreading sport science textbooks and journals to promoting those publications via social media for FiT Publications.

Thank you to everyone who supported these talented English majors by attending the poster exhibit and voting for their favorite posters. A special thanks to the events' three judges, as well: Sara Georgi, Cheryl Ball, and Nalalie Sypolt.
