November 24, 2010 - Tom Gunnels, a Grand Valley State University senior, won second place in the 2010 Norman Mailer College Writing Award for Creative Nonfiction, which draws thousands of submissions each year. Gunnels, a 2006 Brandon High School graduate, is majoring in both writing and in film and video production. The short story, entitled "How to Tell a True Love Story," started out as a one-page response to a prompt in his college writing class and eventually transformed into a 22-page story about Gunnels' grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. Gunnels hopes to stay in the area and continue writing subsequent to graduation. He has recently had the opportunity to work on small fillms in Grand Rapids, including the horror movie "Playback."
