The Ilona Karmel Writing Prizes Competition, sponsored by the Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies, is accepting manuscript submissions from undergraduate and graduate students. Prizes carry cash awards and are given to students whose essays, plays, poetry, fiction and technical papers are judged to be of the highest quality by a committee of faculty and staff members.
William Corbett, director of student writing activities in the Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies, is the competition chair. He encourages all interested students to submit their best efforts and also asks faculty members who receive outstanding undergraduate papers to urge the students to enter the competition.
The deadline for entries is 5 p.m., Friday, April 6.
