Registration Submission

We hope you'll join us for the Undergraduate Writers' Conference on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.  To compete for cash prizes, submit your work by 11:59 PM FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 2014.

While you may enter up to four pieces in this competition (one work in each category), you may not submit the same work to multiple categories. Please fill out a separate form for each submission.

Your essay(s) and creative work will compete against other work created by undergraduates to win prizes of $1000 and $500 in four categories:  Research, Analytical, Professional Writing/Moral Reasoning and Creative. Collections of poetry are considered one submission.

To be eligible for a prize, all students must participate in a small group discussion.  The group discussions are the heart of the Conference and are a lot of fun. (Exceptions can be made for those whose classes or internships/jobs meet during the panel hour.)  Group discussions are 6-7PM Wednesday, April 9, 2014.  Please budget time for participation.  Your performance in the academic discussion group does not influence the prize competition beyond qualifying you for a prize.

To register for this year's Undergraduate Writers' Conference, please complete the submission form below. 

Conference Director Norah Ashe-McNalley will contact you in early April to give you group discussion assignments.  If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Ashe-McNalley at any time:  ashe@usc.edu.
