Creative Writing Award to Maddie Restivo


In November Therese Black, English Teacher,  took six students to the Creative Writing Festival at University of Wisconsin- Whitewater, an annual event attended by a great number of Wisconsin and Chicago area schools.
The students submit creative pieces in advance in one of eleven  categories.  The event consists of a  keynote speech by a published writer and hour- long workshops on the submitted works with the guidance of writers and professors.  At the end of the day there is a big award ceremony for the top works in each category as decided by the professionals in each category. Trinity Senior Maddie Restivo won Second Place in the Humor/Comedy Writing category with a piece entitled:  “A Poem for Break-Up.”
