We are proud to announce that Kirstin Smith is the winner of the 2018 MU Undergraduate Juried Writing competition!
Our judges, Jordi Alonso and Anna Wehrwein, chose Kirstin’s intense work of flash fiction, “Milk Carton Faces.”
Kirstin Smith is a sophomore at the University of Missouri, majoring in Biology and minoring in Anthropology. Her writing career began at a young age with successes such as being published in the Young Authors chronicle with many other aspiring writers as a fifth grader. From there, she devoted many hours to writing hundreds of fan stories of the DC universe, Batman specifically, and amassed nearly 500 works by her junior year of high school. She continues writing in her free time to cope with depression and aims to one day help others with her words.
You can read “Milk Carton Faces” any time at the George Caleb Bingham Gallery or SRLBX x THERETHERENOW.
Better yet, you can hear Kirstin read her work at our reading event at the George Caleb Bingham Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building on the MU Campus on Tuesday, February 27th at 5:00 p.m.
After the reading, we’ll carry on celebrating with an after party at SRLBX x THERETHERENOW (207 Hitt St.) Stop by for refreshments and art!
