When senior Michelle Werner wrote an essay analyzing playwright Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, she did not imagine that the class assignment would later win her a prestigious departmental award.
“It felt a bit like winning the lottery without having bought a ticket,” she says. “I am incredibly grateful to the Department of English for selecting my essay.”
Werner was awarded the second annual Tom Brennan Prize for Excellence in Writing, which recognizes the best essay written for the Introduction to Literary Studies course.
