Morrell-Potter Summer Stipend in Creative Writing

The Department of English Literature is pleased to announce its annual Morrell - Potter Summer Stipend in Creative Writing. This prize of $2500, intended to enable a summer's writing project, will be awarded to a student poet or fiction writer of exceptional promise, to be chosen by the Department's writing faculty. Students in this year's junior class who expect to return to the campus in the fall are invited to submit manuscripts of no more than 10 pages, in either poetry or fiction, along with a brief description of the project they hope to pursue. Submissions are due to the Department office by 4 p.m., Fri., Mar. 11 (the Friday immediately following spring break). Fiction manuscripts should be double-spaced with pages numbered, and no more than one poem should be included on a page. The writer awarded the Morrell-Potter Summer Stipend will give a reading during the next school year of work completed during the summer.
