Morrell-Potter Summer Stipend in Creative Writing

The Department of English Literature annually offers the Morrell - Potter Summer Stipend in Creative Writing. The prize of $4500, intended to enable a summer's writing project, is awarded to a student poet or fiction writer of exceptional promise, as chosen by the Department's writing faculty. 

The application process opens soon after the beginning of the Spring semester.

Students in the current 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. Fiction manuscripts should be double-spaced with pages numbered. Poetry submissions should include no more than one poem on a page.  

More information about Summer Research Opportunities and the application process, including useful details such as FAQs and the Program Guidebook, can be found on the Summer Research Opportunities web site.
