Fair Trade Purple Jasmine Rice

Alumnus and Stillpoint columnist Bryan Parys’ essay on the Fair Trade movement, Seeing Max in the Backyard, has been selected as a finalist for a contest sponsored by the news source site Your Olive Branch. In order to win the grand prize ($2000 in fair trade goods), he needs your help.

To see his entry and the other offerings, head here and cast your vote. You have no idea how honored he’d feel to be given fairly traded purple jasmine rice and 85 percent dark chocolate as a reward for his writing. So again, vote for Bryan!

Fans of the popular Stillpoint column Sporks will have the opportunity to hear Parys read his newest column at Homecoming as he participates in this year’s 255 Grapevine event. Parys graduated from Gordon College in 2004 with a B.A. in English. He holds an M.F.A. in creative nonfiction and is a writing instructor at the University of New Hampshire.
