During Spring term 2012, eleven undergraduate students in CWP Professor
Barrie Jean Borich's course LITERARY MAGAZINES and INDEPENDENT PRESSES
created this online literary publication called DIMINUTIVE PRESENCE.
The journal then hosted a writing contest called THE 2012 MINIATURE CONTEST OF
VERY BRIEF WRITING, open to undergraduate student writers currently
enrolled in any Twin Cities area college or university. The editorial board read and
voted on over 80 submissions, and chose the following three winners.
First Place goes to CHLOE RADCLIFFE of Gustavus Adolphus.
Second Place and the Editor's Choice Award goes to PATRICK PERISH, also of Gustavus.
Third Place goes to MICHAEL VARANO of Macalester.
