2024 Literary Awards
Rules for Submitting University Entries

Only students registered for the 2023-24 academic year (or one semester, either fall or spring) at Purdue University and its regional campuses or at IUPUI are eligible.

Work that has been previously published (or accepted for publication) is not eligible for submission.

Entries that do not conform to these guidelines will not be considered.

You may submit up to three entries for each award, but you may not submit the same entry to more than one award.

Any work that has previously won a Literary Awards prize is ineligible. Students are welcome to submit non-winning entries from previous competitions.

Due to the large volume of submissions, only those students who receive awards will be notified via email sometime before the end of March.


Submissions will be accepted between January 8 through February 23, 2024.

Please fill out this survey form and attach your file/submission (pdf files only) in the space provided and submit. 

The author's name must not appear on the submitted pdf file.

Deadline for submissions is noon on Thursday, February 23, 2024. The survey form will be closed at that time.


Sponsored by the Department of English, the Purdue University Libraries, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, the Honors College, Arthuriana and Modern Fiction Studies.
