The Poetry Center offers three creative writing contests for University of Arizona students:
- The Hattie Lockett Awards, offered every fall semester. Three prizes in the amount of $300 are awarded.
- The Spring Poetry Contests, offered every spring semester. Five prizes in the amount of $100 to $200 each are awarded.
- The LaVerne Harrell Clark Fiction Prize, offered biannually. One prize of $1000 is awarded.
Prize money is posted to the winner’s UA bursar’s account. Please note that if there are outstanding charges on your bursar’s account, prize money will be applied to those charges. So to receive your full award, you must resolve outstanding charges on your bursar’s account.
All contest entries are made through the Poetry Center’s Submittable submission manager. It is FREE to enter these contests.
For additional information about any of these contests, please contact Program Coordinator Hannah Ensor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (520) 626-0709.
