Philadelphia, PA, March 03, 2010 --(PR.com)-- When Pennwriters held a contest in January to find a new slogan for its highly-rated online courses, writers from nearly every continent flooded the organization with entries. After careful consideration, the winning slogan is “Building Careers, One Course At A Time.”

Gail G. Collins, a journalist for the Arizona Daily Sun and co-author of the book, Nigerian Gems: Expatriate Tales of Adventure, was the contest winner of the $100 credit for any Pennwriters online course in 2010. She resides in Houston, TX. A child of immigrants and a traveler, Gail has won a short story writing contest before. Her Web site is http://www.gailgcollins.com.
