Information Technology student and 3rd place winner in fiction, David Jaworski

The Creative Quill is Globe University’s literary journal with creative works written by students. Last year, Globe University-Madison West students submitted five pieces of work. Of those, three students were given the great news that their submissions were published in the Gala 2012, Volume 8 Creative Quill.

Those published were Scott Miller, who penned two poems called “Father”; David Jaworski’s creative short piece called “Through the Window” and Becki Pflager’s two poems titled “Believe” and “Blizzard.”

It was recently announced that Information Technology student, David Jaworski placed 3rd overall in fiction.

When asked about his recognition and published work, David said, “The image they added to my piece captured exactly what I wanted to say. I was really surprised and appreciated it. It was an honor to be published and winning 3rd place was the icing on the cake. I hope to shoot for 1st place next time. It’s such an inspiration to know that others appreciate what I have to say.”
