Congratulations to English major Julia Gagliardi, FCRH’19, who has been named a finalist in the Southhampton Stony Brook Short Fiction Contest for her story “The Chapel of Love” and was recently among those selected as a Creative Writing Concentrator. 

Storytelling of all sorts is close to Julia’s heart––she writes powerfully and persuasively in creative writing classes about her Irish aunts and is a story-telling mentor and founding member of “Our Story,” an event featuring student storytellers who create and share their personal stories with a live audience.

The third “Our Story” event was held Monday, November 12 at Rose Hill, during which Julia told the audience, “This is a chance for students to share uninterrupted stories, share authentically, and share truthful stories from their life.”
