In addition to courses in creative writing, the English Department sponsors both an annual student literary magazine, Avalon, and annual writing contests in poetry and fiction.
Avalon is an annual literary magazine publishing poetry, fiction, drama, visual art, photography, and compositions. Avalon is written, edited, published, and managed by students. Submissions to Avalon are accepted throughout the year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and submissions.
The Bruce Souders and Gordon Link prizes are awarded annually to the best poetry and fiction submitted by a full-time student. The contest deadline is normally the Friday before Spring Break.
