The Department of English is offering a new cash award -- and creative pieces are eligible, so polish off your pens and get to work on our current topic: Student debt.
Yeah, resonates, right?
The details are below:
One $500 award to be given annually at the end of the fall semester to a student who writes an outstanding text on a topical student issue.
Fall 2011: The issue is student debt (but isn't that always an issue? but I digress...) You can enter in any genre: Creative nonfiction, short story, poetry, essay. Length: Up to 1000 words
(but no more than 8 pages).
To qualify, you must be registered in an English course at Capilano.
You need to be nominated (but for that to happen, you need to ask your instructor to nominate you).
The English Department reserves the right not to make an award in a given year.
