Half-day Creative Writing/Media Arts junior Alex Nordlund will be attending Breadloaf's New England Young Writers' Conference (NEYWC) from May 17 to May 20. To audition for the conference, which is open to students nationwide, he submitted a poem entitled "Writing Poetry." This poem earned him one of the seventy spots for poetry.

The NEYWC website describes the conference as "a four day writing-focused workshop for high school sophomores and juniors in New England and from around the country. The long weekend is packed with writing seminars, workshops, readings, and opportunities to meet fellow young writers. Hosted at the Bread Loaf Campus at Middlebury College, students will work with real writers to gain inspiration and develop skills. Admission to NEYWC is based on the quality of writing in these manuscripts, as judged by adult committee members, a professional writer, and readers from the schools which sponsor the Conference."
