We are pleased to announce the four winning pieces from the St. Stephen’s Travel Writing Contest.

All of the pieces were composed in Moira Egan’s Creative Writing class, in response to the now-traditional “Spring Trip Travel Writing” assignment. Congratulations are due to Marco Ventura, grade 9, Laura Rizzo, grade 11, Sofia Peng, grade 9 and Isabella Todini, grade 11. We are sure that you will enjoy reading their fine work in the next issue of The Cortile, online next week.
