Event Date: 
Monday, 21 February 2022 - 8:30am to Monday, 11 April 2022 - 11:00pm

The Joan McLaughlin Short Story Competition is back for a second year and is open to all UWI students who love the written word. Submit your stories by April 11, 2022, for a chance to win one of three prizes.

This competition honors two inspiring UWI educators who loved the written word, Joan McLaughlin and Gloria Lyn. Both Joan and Gloria attended the University as mature students. Joan went first, back in 1962, then became a lecturer who taught Gloria in 1966.  Later Gloria also went on to become a lecturer at UWI.  They particularly enjoyed teaching the wonderful stories of Jamaican folklore and promoting literature. Both women have passed on but their memory lingers as literature continues to transform lives.
