Promoting creativity across the university, the College of Arts and Letters' Creative Writing Contest honors outstanding examples of prose and poetry, written by Stevens students. 

Ever since being launched in 2013 by Billy Middleton, teaching professor in the Freshman Experience, the Creative Writing Contest has celebrated the literary talents of Stevens students from all departments and programs. Judged blindly by the College's faculty, the contest honors separate winners in the categories of prose and poetry, who, along with runners-up and one honorable mention, are invited to present their work at the annual Innovation Expo. Entries reflect a diverse and exciting array of creative talent among Stevens students who are often pursuing degrees in STEM subjects.

Students are invited to submit up to 1,500 words of prose (fiction or creative nonfiction) and up to three poems (experimental or traditional) each spring. The due date for this year's contest is Friday, April 3, 2020.
