Who: All Albion College students who entered as first-year students in 2013 and transfer students with sophomore standing. What: A gift to the English department made possible the creation of the Robert H. Gildart Writing Prizes. These are cash prizes designed to honor the career of Bob Gildart, who taught at Albion College for 25 years and cared deeply about the quality of student writing. The prizes will be awarded each year to sophomores at Albion College. Up to three awards in each category will be made this year, and this notice is an invitation to all sophomores to submit their work for consideration. How: You may submit original works in one or more of the following categories: poetry, fiction, drama. Submissions for each category may contain more than one work but should not exceed 15 pages in total length (25 pages for drama). Entries that contain more than one work in a category will be judged as a whole.

Each entry should have a title-page that includes the following: (1.) The Gildart Prize Contest of 2015, (2.) your name, (3.) your student number, and (4.) the first line of the entry.
