FOR A PUBLISHED PAPER:
When the recently graduated senior at Boston College was assigned to write a response for her Creative Nonfiction workshop, she did. Kyleigh Leddy completed her class assignment, which went on to win the New York Times Modern Love College Essay Contest. 
Shortly after, her award winning essay, initially intended for her professor, appeared in The Times. Kyleigh's written outlook on social media’s role in grieving, presented a unique and well-received perspective on love today. 
Simply put, a well-done class assignment transformed this young woman into a published author.
