Seniors: Two days left to enter your best writing

Senior English majors have until 4pm THURSDAY, April 2, to turn in a portfolio of their best writing in order to be considered for the Nikki Kaye Pape President’s Club Award for Excellence in Writing.

Established in 1971 by Professor Max Pape, the award is given at Commencement to the graduating senior selected by the faculty of the English department for the best selection of writing prepared during the academic year. All forms of writing qualify, including critical essays, creative essays, fiction, poetry, journalism—anything produced this past academic year. There is no minimum or maximum, but judges will be looking for consistency as well as excellence in submitted genres, so be selective in what you submit.
