Cleveland State Undergraduate Contest

Whiskey Island is thrilled to announce its first annual undergraduate writing contest! CSU undergrads are encouraged to submit their fiction, creative essays, and poems for consideration. The editors of Whiskey Island will choose one winning piece from each genre. Winners will see their work published on the Whiskey Island blog and will be invited to read at our launch party in April. The contest is open to all undergraduate students, regardless of major, year, or academic standing.

Maximum word count is 2,000 words. The contest will be judged anonymously, so participants should leave their names off their submissions entirely and include only their CSU student ID number. Submissions that do not comply to these guidelines will not be considered.

The contest opens on January 28th, and the deadline for submissions is February 25th. Winners will be announced March 20th.

The launch party will take place on April 18th between 11:30-1:00 in the Mather Mansion ballroom. Light refreshments will be served.

Students should follow this link to upload their work.

Questions can be emailed to

Good luck!
