Submissions are due Monday, Nov. 2. Winners will be announced Feb. 1, 2016.
An anonymous WSU alumnus funded the competition to encourage students in their literary and writing pursuits, while helping to support them financially.
According to the donor, “Early in life you hear about the power of words, but the more I read, the more I grew to appreciate the beauty of words. There is nothing more enjoyable than a story well told.”
Manuscripts will be screened and reviewed by WSU’s creative writing faculty. The final judges in each genre will be visiting writers from the John S. Lucas Great River Reading Series and other accomplished authors in the appropriate genre.
The winners will be published in WSU’s Satori.
