The Writers' Community: Writing You to Graduation
The Writers’ Community brings faculty and students together to become better writers
throughout the entire writing process in any course. We offer faculty and student
seminars, writing workshops, print and online learning materials, mentorship and camaraderie.
The Writers' Community and the Aims Inclusiveness Council are excited to announce
their Spring 2018 Writing Contest.
This year's theme isWhat Makes You?
- Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment by midnight on April 6th.
- Please title your work but do not put your name on the document! (Do include title of work in the email.)
- We are accepting poetry, creative nonfiction, personal essays, or any type of fiction.
- Entries can have a word count up to 5,000 words, and multiple entries are allowed!
Not sure what to write about? Consider the following topics/prompts:
- How are you more than the sum of your parts?
- How are you unquantifiable by conventional standards?
- Have you ever been broken? If so, how did you put yourself back together?
- Are you a paradox? A koan? A riddle? Why?
- What kind of work of art might you be? A poem? A novel? An etch-A-sketch? Why?
- If you were a statue, sculpture, or other work of visual art, where would you be located
and why? Do you think your upbringing has any influence on why you picked this location?
- If you were a song—or an entire album/CD—what instruments would you incorporate and
why? How do you think these instruments match your personality?
- If you were a painting, what colors, shapes, or artistic styles would you use to represent
- How did you develop the worldview and belief system that form you today?
- How will you, or do you, plan to continue having agency over the you you become?
