In conjunction with this year’s One Book One Campus selection, Make Your Home Among Strangers, VC Voices is hosting a contest to recognize the best essay written about the novel. Even if you’re not writing an essay for a class, you’re welcome to compose a piece of writing to submit here. Writers are encouraged to explore any number of questions such as “What are the challenges first-generation students face at college?,” or “How does the book explore the idea of culture?,” or even more broadly, “What does it actually mean to be a stranger?” “What doe we mean when we talk about personal identity?” The possibilities are vast, so please, contribute! The more, the merrier!
When you submit, please be sure to categorize your entry as a “Make Your Home Among Strangers Essay Contest” entry. Thanks!
