“What Can You Pen?” Creative Writing Contest

2 Comments

The Writer’s Den is excited to announce our first annual creative writing contest for all UCLA undergraduates. This year’s theme is “The End.” This can mean the end of the world, the end of relationships, the end of a journey – anything you want it to mean. Our honorary judges are UCLA professors and faculty members: Karen Kevorkian, Mark Richard, Leslie Schwartz, and Reed Wilson.

Submission Rules

Prizes are awarded in both poetry and prose categories. Prose entries may include short stories, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, and excerpts of plays, screenplays, and novels. Only one entry per student. Entries in prose or poetry cannot exceed 10 double-spaced pages.

Email your submission to thewritersden@ucla.edu by FRIDAY OF 5th WEEK, February 8th, 2013, 6 p.m. with the subject “Poetry Contest Submission” or “Prose Contest Submission.” Please include your full name, UID, major, email, and a fun fact about yourself in the body of your email (don’t worry, this doesn’t affect the judging process in any way).
