The annual undergraduate writing contest is intended to showcase creative writing across the university in a variety of genres.

A $100 prize will be given to each student who creates the best previously unpublished work of short fiction, poetry or creative nonfiction. Winners also will have a manuscript consultation with a judge, and students will be invited to read their works at a public reading in April.
