Cropper Undergraduate Creative Writing Contest in Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction
The University of San Diego awards three prizes each year in honor of Lindsay J. Cropper. The $125 cash prizes recognize undergraduate achievement in the genres of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Submissions will be accepted in the Spring semester.
Submission deadline for the 2014-2015 Cropper Undergraduate Contest in Creative Writing will be in early Spring semester, 2015 (more details coming soon!), with prize announcements made at the Creative Writing Emphasis Student Reading in May 2015. Prizes will be awarded for entries in Poetry, Fiction, and Nonfiction. Submit up to three pages of poetry (one to three poems total), and up to ten pages of fiction or creative nonfiction, double-spaced. Writers may submit in only one category, so please choose the genre you want to submit in. Cropper Writing Contest rules and due dates.
