Writing prizes

Recognising our students' talent in prose and verse.

I am honoured to have won the Sloan Prize for 2019. I was surprised, and indeed overwhelmed, when I received the news, and it truly means a lot to me. I think it is amazing that the award celebrates literature in various lowland dialects, and gives significant value to the languages that we learn growing up, and speak in our everyday lives.
