Maren Schettler


The Gladys Boen Scholarship is awarded “for the best short story, poem or collection of poems, or essay submitted by an undergraduate currently enrolled in the university.” The Creative Writing Scholarship Committee had this to say on Maren Schettler’s “The History of Hurry”: “With its fragmented form and its melding of criticism with the personal essay, Maren Schettler’s essay enacts the very principle defended in her essay’s argument: that we must slow down, resist the urge to hurry, and break free from the rule of clocks and calendars.”
