Writing Awards

The USCA Department of English

2018 Writing Awards

Submission Guidelines for all awards are available in H&SS 204.

 

The Phebe Davidson Prize in Creative Writing

The Phebe Davidson prize in Creative Writing was established in honor of distinguished South Carolina poet Phebe Davidson. The prize, normally a significant monetary scholarship, is offered annually by the USCA Department of English to a full-time, currently enrolled student at USCA whose work demonstrates superior achievement in creative writing. While the competition invites work in four genres (fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and drama), only one award will be presented in a given year. All entries will be judged anonymously by a panel of professors from the Department of English. The Department reserves the right not to present the award if the judges do not recommend a winner.

 

The Mona L. Martin Prize in First Year Writing

Through the generosity of distinguished USCA graduate Mona L. Martin (B.A. English, 1995), the Mona L. Martin Prize in First Year Writing, normally a significant monetary scholarship, is offered annually by the USCA Department of English to a first-year USCA student who demonstrates excellence in expository writing. All entries will be judged anonymously by a panel of professors. The Department reserves the right not to present the award if the judges do not recommend a winner.

Submission Deadline: March 21, 2018
