Student Lindsey Walker’s Winning Streak in Writing

Lindsey Walker, an English major at North Seattle Community College, has won four awards this quarter for her writing – at both the local and national level. A prolific writer who hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee, she has received cash prizes and recognition for her poetry, fiction and essay writing.

Most recently, Lindsey won first place for her personal essay, “Chaos Theory,” in the 2010 -2011 League for Innovation National Student Literary Competition. The competition, hosted this year by San Diego City College, drew student submissions from all over the United States and Canada. In addition to receiving $500, Lindsey’s work will be published in an anthology scheduled to go to press in late summer.
 
Lindsey’s essay was also chosen for first prize at the district-wide competition leading up to the national League for Innovation Literary Competition. In addition, she won the Licton Springs Review’s Marcia Barton prize for best fiction and the LOFT Writing Center’s annual poetry prize this quarter.
Her creative writing instructor, Tracy Heinlein, calls Lindsey’s accomplishments a “grand slam” and tells us that Lindsey has been chosen to serve as managing editor of the Licton Springs Review in 2012. Please congratulate Lindsey on her amazing achievements!
