25 Students to be Published in National Literary Journal

Twenty-five Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) members will have their writing published in the 2020 issue of PTK’s online literary journal, Nota Bene. Five will receive scholarships for their exemplary entries.

Nota Bene showcases the outstanding writing of Phi Theta Kappa members. More than 370 entries were submitted to the 2020 competition, which is judged by current and retired college faculty and staff from across the country. The digital issue will be available on ptk.org this winter.

Kasey Bull, a student at Greenfield Community College in Massachusetts, has received Nota Bene’s highest honor, the Ewing Citation Award of $1,000, for her body of work, “Nostalgia,” “On Moving,” and “Simplicity.” The award is named in honor of the late Nell Ewing, a long-time PTK staff member who oversaw Nota Bene and retired in 2012.

Four additional authors will each receive a Reynolds Award of $500. The award is endowed by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and honors the memory of the late Donald W. Reynolds, founder of the Donrey Media Group.
