Submission Deadline: Swarthout Awards

The Swarthout Awards in the ASU Department of English are one the University’s oldest and most celebrated traditions, recognizing the promising creative work of student writers. This will be the 56th year of the awards, made possible by the generosity of Swarthout Family.

The Swarthout Awards are open to undergraduate and graduate students in any college at ASU and at any level, but the applicant must be under age 26 by the entry date for the awards. Awards will consist of a first, second, and third prize and honorable mention in poetry; and a first, second, and third prize and honorable mention in fiction. In 2018, first prizes will be $2,000, second prizes $1,500, third prizes $1,000, and honorable mention awards $500. Winners must be present at the award ceremony, typically held in April each year; otherwise, the prize money will be returned to the Swarthout Fund for next year's prizes.
