Tri-C Professor Honored by Outdoor Writers of Ohio
Andrew Pegman receives third-place award for fly-fishing story published in ‘The Drake’ magazine
When it comes to writing about fishing, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) professor Andrew Pegman keeps landing awards for his work.
His most recent catch is a third-place honor for magazine writing from the Outdoor Writers of Ohio. Pegman received the award for a story titled “Fishing from Stone.” The article on fly-fishing appeared in the spring 2019 edition of The Drake magazine.
The essay brings readers along for one of Pegman’s visits to a Lake Erie breakwall, where he casts for perch, smallhead, steelhead and walleye “against the backdrop of the Cleveland skyline.”
Pegman is an associate professor of English at Tri-C and an oft-published outdoor writer whose work reflects his lifelong passion for fishing, birding and exploring the wilderness.
Last year, the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) honored Pegman at its Excellence in Craft competition. He earned a second-place award in the fishing category for an article published by American Angler.
He is an active member of both the OWAA and Outdoor Writers of Ohio. His work has been published by Field & Stream, The Plain Dealer, Outdoor Life, Kayak Angler and Ohio Outdoor News, among others.
Pegman joined Tri-C’s faculty in 2005 and currently serves as the College’s Joint Faculty Senate chair. Earlier this year, he was recognized with a Distinguished Faculty Award by the American Association of Community Colleges.
