Laura Citino, senior English and German major, won second prize in creative nonfiction at the 2010 Sigma Tau Delta International Convention for "Souvenirs," which she presented at the convention last weekend. "Souvenirs" is based on her experience studying abroad in Germany last year.
Citino, the 2010 Presidential Scholar in Foreign Languages, serves as the communications officer of the WMU chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. She is also an editor of the Laureate, WMU's literary magazine, and works as a consultant at the Writing Center. She will graduate in April and plans to pursue graduate study in German and creative writing.
