From Red Bay, Mary-Elizabeth Moore took third place in poetry for “The Question.” Moore was joined by fellow ICC students Charlie Wright of Pontotoc, first place in dramatic writing for “An Accumulation of Anguish,” and Briana Polk of Tupelo, honorable mention in poetry for “Drowning.”

The competition included poetry, short story, creative nonfiction, literary essay, dramatic writing and college literary magazine.

First, second and third place winners received monetary prizes of $100, $60 and $40, respectively.
