The Quill: Student Academic Writing
I found my story "Law and Order" had been discussed in a college paper titled "Identity and Authenticity in George Orwell’s Burmese Days: The Pukka Sahib Englishman in British Colonial Burma" by Patti Fish Stephens of Ursuline college. Please find the link below-reading it may inspire teachers to use my short story in teaching the same issues. Here is a description of the Quill, where this paper was published:
"Named in honor of the now-defunct campus newspaper, The Quill is a showcase for student academic writing. It features student writing that has been nominated as worthy of distinction by instructors. By making public examples of the fine student writing produced at Ursuline, we hope to inspire more excellence in future student writing."
