CHESTERTOWN, Md. (AP) — A student from Delaware has won the nation’s largest undergraduate literary prize.
Washington College announced Friday that Justin Nash, 22, of Smyrna won the Sophie Kerr Prize, which is worth $65,580 this year. The prize named for an Eastern Shore writer is awarded each year to the graduating senior demonstrating the best potential for future achievement in a literary endeavor. School officials say Nash was one of six finalists this year.
The English major with three minors hopes to become an editor with a nonprofit publishing press one day.
Nash grew up on a farm in Smyrna and focuses on subjects like rural life, death and desire.
