CEU's Sharkey Wins National Grammar Day Haiku Contest

March 14, 2017

CEU International Media Relations Manager Colleen Sharkey won the 2017 National Grammar Day haiku contest, sponsored by podcaster Grammar Girl and the American Copy Editors Society (ACES). Her haiku is a play on words that relate to both grammar and pregnancy: 

With a pregnant pause
I calculate periods
Here come contractions

She was inspired by a friend in her native Ohio to enter the contest, competing against 500 other entrants. For taking the top prize, Sharkey receives a one-year membership to ACES and several grammar-related books.
