Anna is finding her PLACE in Charlottesville

We enjoyed reading her prize-winning nonfiction story for the WriterHouse / C-ville Weekly contest!

Anna Hennigan

Though she’s only 16 years old, youth category winner Anna Hennigan is no stranger to storytelling. “My parents used to read to me before I could talk, and when I was two or three I started babbling stories to myself to fall asleep,” she said. “When I got older I started writing them down.”Hennigan grew up in Connecticut and spent half-days at an art school for creative writing. Her winning essay, “The Weight of Departure,” was the first she wrote after moving to Charlottesville last year.
