Juniors, have you considered applying for the Annie Sonnenblick Writing Award yet? The award supports juniors who wish to undertake an independent writing project during the summer between their junior and senior years. Here is the prize description:
We welcome applications for the Annie Sonnenblick Writing Award, given annually to a member of the junior class who shows unusual promise in creative writing.
The Sonnenblick family has established this award in memory of Annie Sonnenblick, a member of the Wesleyan class of 1980, who took great pleasure in literature and the creative arts. The winner will be a student whose interests and talents reflect Annie Sonnenblick’s spirit.
Applicants should propose a writing project to be completed during the summer between their junior and senior years. Previous winners have written short fiction, collections of poetry, and nonfiction projects such as biographical sketches and studies of places. The award provides funding of up to $1,500 to support the project and the writer’s summer living expenses. The completed project is due on the first day of the fall semester.

Applications are due by Thursday, March 24th.
