|Jake "+ American Writer = BFF" Wrenn|
The $1000 scholarship, given out by the Chicago based Friends of American Writers is given to a writer who best exemplifies the mission of the organization - "to study American literature, to encourage high standards and to promote literary ideals among American writers."
In addition, Jake recently had a short piece published at The Point. Jake's writing will be hobnobbing it up next to pieces by Roosevelt student James Orbesen and professor Kyle Beachy. I guess you could say we're the appointed contributors to this magazine.
Be sure to give Jake and James a big "tally-ho" (or just say congrats) when you see them next.
