Student Literary Awards

The University of Northern Colorado Writers’ Conference announces a writing contest open to all currently enrolled UNC undergraduates to recognize the achievements of student writers. It will honor outstanding student work with awards in three categories:

  • Poetry
  • Fiction
  • Creative Nonfiction

Contest winners in each genre will receive a $100 honorarium. The $500 Rosenberry Prize will be given to the single best work. Winners will present their work at a public reading on campus. Winners and Honorable Mention finalists will be listed in the Writers' Conference program. Finalists will be determined by a board comprised of UNC writing faculty. Judges reserve the right to not award a winner in any given category.
