Review: 2020.056 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Obviously the story symbolizes the way people come to a new country and have to give up their old ways. Niovi mourns for what she lost, and even though she makes progress, and even though she chose this life, she’s still sad.

The scene where her mom’s ghost waves goodbye to her was very sad.

Con: There’s no plot beyond the allegory, and the allegory is pretty obvious, so the story really drags.

There are numerous problems with the grammar in the story.
