Undergraduate Writing Award Winners Announced


The Saint Louis University Library Associates have announced the winners of the 2019 Undergraduate Writing Award.

The award was inaugurated in 2014 and is now completing its sixth round. This year’s genre was creative nonfiction.


Their works are available online in the Spring issue of the undergraduate literary journal Kiln.

The Undergraduate Writing Award rotates annually between short fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.

Next year’s prize will be awarded for short fiction. Details of the 2021 cycle, including submission requirements and timeline, will be posted in the fall semester on the Undergraduate Writing Award website.

The mission of the Saint Louis University Library Associates is to enhance the visibility of the Saint Louis University Libraries in order to promote the development of their collections and services. The organization also sponsors literary and cultural events, including the prestigious St. Louis Literary Award, first presented in 1967 and given annually to a distinguished figure in literature.
