Avery and Jule Hopwood Awards in Creative Writing.
Under the terms of the will of Avery Hopwood, a member of the Class of 1905, the annual income from a generous endowment
fund is distributed in prizes for creative work in four fields:
dramatic writing, fiction, poetry, and the essay. The first awards were made in 1931, and today the Hopwood Program is proud to offer approximately $100,000 in prizes every year to young aspiring writers at the University of Michigan.
Competition is open to qualified students enrolled in any school or college of the University. Entrants must, however, be enrolled in a designated writing course elected through the
Department of English Language and Literature, Residential College, Department of Communication Studies, or the Department of Theatre and Drama. The Hopwood Program also administers 17 other writing and prize competitions. For full information about the conditions of competition contact the Hopwood Program Associate, 1176 Angell
Hall, (734) 764-6296, or visit the Hopwood Progam website at:
