We want to encourage all eligible students to submit their work to be considered for the Hurston/Wright Founding Members Award for College Writers before the deadline on December 1, 2014:
Since 1990 the Hurston/Wright Foundation has presented awards to Black college writers. With the 2014 award we are introducing a new award, the Hurston/Wright Founding Members Award for College Writers. This award, now open to poets as well as fiction writers is generously underwritten by a supporter of the Hurston/Wright Foundation with a cash award of $3,000.
Eligibility: At the time of submission, applicants must be enrolled full-time as an undergraduate or graduate student in a U.S. college or university. Writers who have published a book in any genre are ineligible.
