Creation Date



Eleven students in a creative writing class at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford won in the November NaNoWriMO, an annual novel writing project that brings together professional and amateur writers from all over the world. Each student completed novels of at least 50,000 words in one month. Most of the students will now be editing their novels in hopes of getting them published. Winning were (front from left): Ashley Comstock, Cordell; Erin Benton, Mustang; Rachel Frans, Weatherford; and Marisa Bolin, Hobart.
