“The event began in an effort to showcase the artistic talent we have on the Charlotte Campus,” said Natala Orobello, FSW Professor of English. “Each year our student-artists present their unique talents. In conjunction with the Cultural Arts Festivals is our annual Serendipity Writing Contest. The winners will read their poetry or short stories at the festival.”
