Its mission is to provide experiences that develop and enrich faculty teaching and scholarship, to facilitate academic collaboration among member colleges and to foster information exchange and cooperation among administrators.

Sarah Gould '04 received an honorable mention for her story 28-year Discord.

Seth McKinney '04 also received an honorable mention for his story White Pickett Fences.

Samantha Sibert '06 received an honorable mention for her story Lost Battles.

The winners in each category will be submitted for consideration in Confluence, the literary journal published by the Ohio Valley Literary Group and Marietta College. Both the winners and the honorable mentions will be published in the 2004 ECC Literary Anthology.

At Muskingum, each of these students also has been published in the college's literary magazine, First Circle.
