DPG Essay Contests Open to All Students
April 3, 2013 — In conjunction with the Week of Writing, the Department of English and Philosophy is now accepting submissions for the 2013 Drexel Publishing Group (DPG) Essay Contest, and the Week of Writing (WoW) Contest. DPG Essay Contest categories include humanities, social sciences, the graduate student essay, and the Zelda Provenzano Endowed STEM Writing Award (previously known as the science and math category). The WoW Contest offers categories in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, humor, and op-ed/persuasion.
Submissions to the DPG Essay Contest are due by April 11, 2013, and submissions to the WoW Contest are due by April 18, 2013. Both contests are open to students in all majors, and students are welcome to enter (and win) in multiple categories. Prizes will be awarded to the top essays in each category, and winning entries will be considered for publication in The 33rd, the College of Arts and Sciences’ print anthology used in the First-Year Writing Program. This is an excellent opportunity for students to see their work in print!
