It is with a heavy heart that we, the Multicultural Certificate team, announce our decision to cancel Rewriting Realities 7 for the 2019-2020 academic year. We fully anticipate hosting it again, under the same name, next year starting in February – although it may have a different prompt. You are fully welcome to resubmit your same submission when our contest restarts next year.
For all of you who are graduating this semester, our heart goes out to you, and this contributed significantly to the weight of our decision. When we asked the question “Who are you becoming?” none of us could have anticipated how COVID-19 would influence that question. We encourage everyone to continue practicing self-care and to care for their loved ones and neighbors in these harrowing times. To look out for one another. To help our heroes. To save lives. We are all becoming something different, and our office believes that something will be beautiful.
