Writing Contest

Each year, the Department of English Literature & Writing hosts a writing contest for students enrolled at a community college in the United States. First prize in each category is a tuition waiver for a three-credit class in the English department at Marylhurst.

Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award

The Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award is presented each spring in memory of Jackie Mosier, class of 2008. The award is presented to a student of junior-level standing who shows promise and dedication as a creative writer and who also engages in generous participation with the English literature and writing community.

The awardee receives a $2,500 tuition credit the following fall term. The recipient also has the opportunity for an individual conference with a selected author as part of the following year's Marylhurst Reading Series, and to read a selection from his or her work as part of that author's reading.

A plaque with each year's recipient is displayed in Flavia Hall. The Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award has been made possible by the generosity of John Mosier and the family of Jackie Mosier.

Past recipients:

Carrie Padian and Nate Wilkerson, 2013
Braeden Dillenbeck, 2012
Ryan Dewolf, 2011
George Rachel, 2010
Erin Osborne, 2009
