You may submit 3-5 poems, a short story, a few pages of a novel, a research essay or literary analysis, or a published clip from a newspaper or magazine. The work should reflect your authorial achievements, styles and your approaches to the written craft. Along with the written work, you should submit a one-page cover letter, describing your writing experiences, interests, and aspirations. Bring this portfolio with you to the on-campus competition period.
