BYU English Department hosts Writer's Portfolio Contest

Entries due Feb. 1

The English Department at Brigham Young University will sponsor the annual Writer’s Portfolio Contest with a prize of $500 to be awarded to the winner.

The contest is open to all full-time undergraduate and graduate students. All entries must be submitted to the English Department office, 4198 JFSB, by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Designed to encourage BYU students to develop a wide variety of writing skills, the rigorous contest requires students to submit writing pieces in five different categories: scholarly paper or article, technical paper, popular article, fiction and drama and poetry. At least one of the items must have been printed in or accepted by a publication having a professional editor.
