Poetry and Short Story Competition: Getting Started

New name. New format. Same great competitions.

In 2014, Drs. Jean Minto and Timothy Hui had an idea to bring the library and the arts together in the form of poetry and short stories. So was born the annual POet Laurete and short story competition. Dr. Minto passed away in fall 2020 and we are still grieving the immeasurable loss of our dear friend, professor and colleague. The Masland Library and School of Liberal Arts and Sciences could think of no better way to honor the life of Dr. Minto then by continuing the competition and to rename in her honor.
