Title Creative Writting in 1926 to 1930
Description CREATIVE WRITING IN 1926 to 1930 Leo C. Larsen 1416 South 1300 West Salt Lake City, Utah 84104 Honorable Mention Historical Essay The Centennial Celebration of Snow College that the Saga of the Sanpitch has suggested the theme "Memories of Snow College" for the 1987 edition. In reviewing the contents of past editions of former students of Snow College have contributed articles to the publication. Some of the professors in the English Department in the 1920's were Lucy Phillips, Fern Young, and Dicie Brimhall. They taught Classes in j ournalism, short stories, poetry, essay writing, and vocabulary building. Due to the creative writing talents of some of ^heir students prior to 1926, these professors d e- emed it advisable to organize, with a few of the outstanding students of their classes as a nucleus, a writers' club. Accordingly, in the school year of 1926-1927 a creative writing club was organized, named "The Scribbler's Club," with the following statement: "The purpose of the club is to foster creative writing. Membership is gained in this club by submitting a manuscript of sufficient merit to grant admission" Jewell Rasmussen, a student from Spring City, was president of the club during the school year 1928-1929. Leo Larsen was president, with Edna Braithwaite, Verl E. Johansen, and Hazel King as assistants, for the school year 1929-1930. At the beginning of the school year 1928, there were only three bona fide club members, but under the energetic leadership of Jewell Rassmussen the membership increased to about eighteen. Manuscripts of worth and prize-winning articles that were written during the school years of 1926 to 1930 are worthy of note and some of them are hers listed. Space will not permit printing any
