Primary Text Program's second summer institute participants receive scholarships

Submitted by Camryn Eberhardy

Five K-State students, who completed the last session of the Live Ideas Summer Institute, will receive $250 scholarships for their participation. Each student has plans to submit their creative work to Live Ideas Undergraduate Journal

The students are Chris Butler, Trace Henderson, Gary McIntosh, McKenna Nease and Alissa Rehmert.

Each participant had the opportunity to work with peers to workshop a piece they want to write or had already written. The creative works seen in this institute ranged from poems to short stories to essays.

Live Ideas Institutes and the Live Ideas Undergraduate Journal are a part of K-State's primary texts certificate program, which is supported through generous contributions from Glenn Swogger and the Redbud Foundation.

Thank you to Mark Crosby, associate professor of English; and John Warner, associate professor of political science, for their talks on apocalyptic ideas for the institute.
