Stephen David Grover, a Brigham Young University senior and English major, is one of three winners of the Association of Writers and Writing Program’s Intro Journals Award in creative nonfiction.
Grover's essay, "On Trembling," which he wrote in an English 317R class, was selected from hundreds of entries written by undergraduates and graduates from all over the country. The entry, according to English professor Patrick Madden, “participates in the classical essay tradition in meditating on a subject from many angles and with many stories.”
"On Trembling" will be published in the literary journal "Artful Dodge."
Grover, originally from Sugar Land, Texas, plans to pursue a master's degree in English at Ohio University this fall.
The Association of Writers and Writing Programs seeks to foster literary talent and achievement and encourage the art of writing as essential to a complete education. Founded in 1967, the association continues to support creators, teachers, students and readers of contemporary writing.
