The deadline for Writing Showcase submissions is right around the corner!

The Writing Showcase celebrates outstanding student writing. If you know a student who received an A on a paper or glowing feedback on an ILP, please have them fill out an application and submit their work by April 1. They may submit up to three poems, stories, essays, reports, ILPs, Capstones, Advanced Projects, Applied Inquiry Projects, Integrating Projects, or e-Portfolios.

We encourage students to share their accomplishment and inspire others!  Excellent submissions are recognized at the annual SNL Spring Awards Luncheon. Writing Showcase participants are invited to recite selections from their submissions and discuss their writing processes at our annual Writing Showcase Live event, which will be held on April 20, 2017 from 6-8 p.m.

All work completed since April 1, 2016 is eligible for submission. To submit, students should email the application form (linked above) along with their work, to SNLwriting@depaul.edu by 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2017.
