This is just a reminder that the deadline for the Inkwell student essay contest is Friday, Dec. 18. The details can be found below:


The Writing Program and the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program at CSI are pleased to announce the next Inkwell essay contest. We are looking for the three best essays written for a first-year writing class (English 111 or 151) and the three best essays from any course across the curriculum. Students in all disciplines are invited to apply.

There are two deadlines: one for essays submitted during the fall semester (Dec. 18, 2015) and one for essays submitted during the spring semester (Friday, May 27, 2016). Winners will be announced in June.

We encourage faculty to help students choose which paper to submit. The six winning essays will be published in our campus anthology Inkwell.

Students should submit three clean copies of their papers to the English Department (Building 2S, Room 218) along with the online cover sheet.

If you have any questions about the contest, please contact Harry Thorne at
