Tenth Annual Student Creative Writing Contest Offers Cash Prizes

Southwestern Adventist University’s tenth annual Creative Writing Contest presents the opportunity for students to share their creative writing skills and possibly even earn money for it.

Sponsored by the Department of English, the contest is available to Southwestern students only and includes the two following categories: short story and poetry. Each category will have first and second winners for cash prizes of $100 and $50 respectively.

To participate in this contest, there are seven rules:

  1. You must be a current student at Southwestern Adventist University.
  2. Your entry must be an original and unpublished work by you. Your work should also be consistent with the values and ideals of Southwestern.
  3. Short stories should be between 1,000 and  3,000 words. Poetry is limited to 30 lines or less. Each entry should be submitted in Microsoft Word, double spaced for short stories.
  4. Two entries per category maximum for each student.
  5. Include the title of your entry on both the first page of the manuscript and on the cover sheet. Do not include your name on the manuscript.
  6. Students can only win once in each category. If a student wins first place in one category, he or she is ineligible to win first place in the other category.
  7. On your cover sheet, make sure to include the entry category, title of entry, your name, year and major.

Prof. Jayne Doneskey will judge the short story category and Dr. Renard Doneskey will judge the poetry.  

Deadline to turn in all entries is Thursday, March 12 at 5 p.m.  The entries must be submitted to robinson@swau.edu to be considered and the winners will be announced on Monday, March 23.
