Beckah Porter ’16 was sitting in a coffee shop one May weekend in 2016. She had come there to write, a routine she’d formed since graduating Elon University a short time before. But that day, she didn’t get any writing done. It was the day she got the email that her poem “Vignette” was going to be published in The Prairie Margins, Bowling Green State University’s undergraduate literary journal. “I had to step outside, do a little dance, I was so excited,” Porter said.
