“The English Department sponsors and administers two annual undergraduate literary competitions in Short Fiction and Poetry. Depending on available funding, there will be 3-4 prizes in Fiction and 2-3 in Poetry this year. Past prizes have ranged from $100 to $1000. When this year’s amounts have been determined they will be announced here, so please check back for more information.
Contest rules are as follows:
Short Fiction: no contestant may submit more than one story
