Writing Awards

The Writing Awards give you the opportunity to celebrate your prose

We write for many reasons. We write for the pleasure of clarifying our thoughts and thinking through our ideas. We also write to share and convey. We text friends, we email family, and we publish discoveries that inform a community of scholars. And, yes, we also write to complete assignments. In every case, we create a permanency that lets others understand our insights and revelations, regardless of whether those expressions speak to the mundane or revolutionary.
