Ripon alumna wins writing award
Donna Haubrich Reichle ’59 of Kingston, Tenn., received the Joy Margrave Nonfiction third-place award at the recent annual conference of the Tennessee Mountain Writers (TMW). The award was given for her short story, “Poot Roots in the Closet,” drawing on experiences at a rural cabin and farm that is shared as a second home with her son and his family.
The TMW conference draws several hundred writers from all over the eastern part of the United States, with entries for the writing competition being submitted from as far away as California, New York and Chicago. This year’s award was the third that Reichle received in the past four competitions.
