Entries Now Being Accepted in the 10th Annual Creative Quill

Creative Quill_2Happy 10th Anniversary to the Creative Quill!  Why is this exciting, you ask?

The Creative Quill is a literary journal that was first published in 2005. Its origins were from assignments in a Creative Writing class taught by Anna Martignacco at the Minnesota School of Business- Richfield campus.  It was such a hit that the Creative Quill became a campus wide Globe University & Minnesota School of Business (GU & MSB)  contest, which publishes students’ poetry, fiction, non-fiction, art work, and plays every year.

The Quill is an opportunity for students to share their work with the Globe & MSB community and to have bragging rights about being published. Think how being published would look on a resume!

“I am very excited to be published in the Creative Quill. Thank you so much,” said Scott Loesch, a game design graduate.

Creative QuillMSB-Richfield held its 10 year anniversary of the Creative Quill in the library this November.  The campus community enjoyed treats and music, as well as reading of poems written by Richfield students. The campus celebrated the twelve authors from our campus in this year’s Creative Quill. It was a really fun event.

“Anna always had students creating wonderful original writing for their assignments,” said Carol Jaeger, a Richfield instructor. “This is a tradition that we value and will continue at the Richfield campus.”
