What are the Rash Awards?
In 2010, the Broad River Review began two new contests, called the Rash Awards, named in honor of Ron Rash, a 1976 graduate of Gardner-Webb University. Rash’s first published work appeared in the pages of this literary review (a poem, “Last Night’s Ride” and a story, “Turtle Meat”). Rash grew up in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, home to Gardner-Webb University, and earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Gardner-Webb and Clemson universities, respectively.
