Dylan Lewis, an English major from Kirksville, and Ryley Lyons, an English major from New Franklin, were this year’s Inscape editors.

Members of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society at CMU, and faculty members of the English department voted for the winners of each category to be honored with the annual Inscape awards. The faculty advisor is Dr. Kavita Hatwalkar, assistant professor of English.

This year’s Inscape contributors included students from both Central’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) in Fayette, and College of Graduate and Extended Studies (CGES).
