Every year, the Department of English hosts two events designed to showcase the depth of our students’ writing and performance talents.

Aspiring creative writers can submit their work to be considered for inclusion in The Fall Showcase of Literary Arts Competition and The Spring Showcase of Literary Arts Competition.

Submission Instructions:

Submissions can be in any genre (poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction) and must be no longer than 3 pages (5-6 minutes when read aloud).
