The Fine Print: Notice of Awards


Each year, The Nyack College English Department sponsors an awards contest to encourage and recognize talented creative writers and artists who are students at Nyack.  In the past, some of our award winners have gone on to publish their work in prestigious journals and art venues.  The English faculty is thankful for the opportunity to work with such a diverse and gifted student body and encourage each essayist, poet, photographer, and artist to pursue excellence in embodying the profound intersections among thought, feeling, belief, and form.  We delight in seeing God’s image in each artist presented in this book, and here we recognize the outstanding contributions.
