Essay Writing Contest

The English Department would like to announce its third annual campus-wide essay contest.  There are two separate categories:  English 111/151 and upper-division writing in all disciplines.  I encourage you to help your students select one of their essays to submit and suggest they revise their essays before doing so. 

The winners will receive a prize generously provided by Dean Francisco Soto and they will be published in Inkwell.
This essay contest is a great opportunity for students to see their work in print. The resulting publication showcases the best of student writing across the disciplines, and it is a valuable teaching tool as well.

Please share this announcement with your students.

Essays written during the spring semester should be submitted in three clean copies to the English Department by Tuesday, May 26 at 2:00pm along with the cover sheet.  Click Here  to view the cover sheet.
