Calling All First-Years: Submit To A Writing Contest!

Fancy yourself a good writer? Here’s the chance to show your stuff: submit to the First-Year Writing Contest!

In addition to receiving a twenty dollar Amazon.com gift certificate, the winners will be featured and published on the Wesleyan Writing Blog.

Your challenge: respond creatively or critically in 1,000 words or less to some aspect of this year’s First Year Matters theme, fueling the future.

The rest is UP TO YOU! Poetry, short stories, opinion pieces, research papers: we want it all! Don’t think of it as extra work, think of it as a fun opportunity to integrate yourself into the writing community here at Wesleyan. Think about it: starting your college experience off with a writing prize under your belt would be pretty hard to beat.

Check out the Wesleyan Writing Blog for all the submission details. The deadline is noon on Saturday, September 24, so get cracking!
