MOUNT VERNON—Students from two Brewton-Parker College creative writing classes presented their original short stories at Creative Expressions Night Tuesday, Nov. 28 in the Cyber Café.
Students in the creative writing classes were required to produce several works, including one of each in the poetry and fiction styles. The fictional short stories were a major part of the classes’ coursework. Students spent approximately two months preparing their stories from conception through the final edit.
Dr. Thom Brucie, assistant professor and instructor of the creative writing classes, said, “I am very pleased with their efforts. The stories were completely original and captured the audience from the very beginning. There was a variety of genres represented, including mystery, science fiction, historical, romance and fantasy.”
The students and their selected readings were as follows: Tabitha Connell, “Prisoner’s Promise”; Josh Nobles, “The Change Of A Life By The Crashing Of An Egg”; Katherine Christian, “Life Goes On”; Paul Lanning, “Disappearing Dreams”; and, Jeffrey Jackson, “Warp”.
