Gwen Frostic Creative Writing Awards

The deadline for this year's Frostic Creative Writing Awards is Friday, January 28. We very much hope you'll consider submitting your work. This contest has both graduate and undergraduate awards.

Here are the details:

Submissions will be accepted in four genres: Fiction, Poetry, Non-Fiction, and Drama. You may submit to as many genres as you would like; you may submit up to 3 poems, one story, one essay, and/or one play. Your submission should include a cover sheet with your name, the title(s) of the submission, your contact information, and whether you are a GRADUATE or UNDERGRADUATE student. Submissions should be turned into the mailbox of Steve Feffer, spring Creative Writing Program Coordinator, on the 6th floor of Sprau.

Creative writing faculty will determine the finalists in each genre and classification (GRAD and UNDERGRAD), which will then be passed on to outside judges. Those judges will pick a SINGLE overall winner in each genre and classification. Fiction submissions will also be considered for the annual Gordon Prize in Fiction.

If you have questions, please drop Dustin M. Hoffman an e-mail at:
