Writing Contest for College Students

Here’s a no-fee contest opportunity for undergraduate writers:

The Susquehanna Review has extended its deadline! We understand that this is a busy time in the school year and would like to give students who haven’t yet submitted the opportunity to do any last minute revisions and send in their work. The new submission deadline is April 10, 2010.

Please send your submissions to sureview@susqu.edu You can find our complete submission guidelines and excerpts from past submissions at http://www.susqu.edu/academics/9810.asp

The Susquehanna Review is Susquehanna University’s nationally distributed student-run literary magazine. It annually features works of fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry written by the most promising undergraduates in the United States. Their creative talent has helped make ours one of the most diverse undergraduate literary journals in the country. And SU Review is once again open for submissions.

Not only are we looking to publish the best undergraduate writing, but this year SU Review announces the launch of the Gary Fincke Creative Writing Prize, awarding a $100 prize to the Best in Poetry and Best in Prose. There is no submission fee to enter this contest – all submissions are automatically under consideration and all students (except those currently enrolled at Susquehanna) are eligible. Please forward this information on to your students of creative writing. We look forward to their contribution. Please don’t hesitate to email us if you have any questions.
