As a new adventure in writing, the Mirror is accepting short creative writing submissions in any form: poems, song lyrics, short stories and more as a way to showcase Augustana’s talent. All work must be your own. Submit any work you feel fitting to


This week’s works are the winning haikus from the Writing Center’s haiku contest. The first place winner was Lauren Elizabeth Ponwith. Second place was given to Julia Kabes.
