Writing Competitions

Writing competitions may be pursued on a student’s own time or with support from a professor. If working with a professor, students may write a submission to a writing competition as an element of an independent study and receive class credit. The paper may also be eligible to fulfill the Upper-Level Rigorous Writing Requirement.
