Underclassman takes home Harriet Wilson Fiction Prize

by Sean Ellertson

Sophomore Elora Philbrick was awarded the Harriet Wilson Fiction Prize, given to a student who writes the best fiction story for Fiction Workshop.

“I feel really honored to win this award and it was really unexpected,” said Philbrick.

Philbrick’s piece was based on a gay relationship between two women.

“My professor wanted us to write stories on something you don’t read about every day, and I’m proud of my work,” said Philbrick.
