Cervantes honored for her poetry

 

Cowley College Humanities Department Chair Marlys Cervantes recently received an honorable mention award for a traditional poem in the adult category of the 28th Kansas Voices Writing Contest held at the Winfield Community Center at Baden Square.


Cervantes’ poem was titled “Chaco Canyon Tanka Collection”.


Last year, Cervantes won honorable mention for a creative non-fiction piece, but was at another event where she presented poetry, so she was not able to attend the event.


“This year, I was so pleased to attend and be able to present my work alongside so many talented writers from across the state,” Cervantes said.


There were 22 awards in the adult category from 280 entries.
