Students who would like feedback on their work-in-progress are encouraged to visit the Writing Center, where tutors will be happy to work one-on-one with them.

How to Submit Your Entry

Please use the contest gallery on the National Day on Writing website to submit your entry and click on “contribute to this gallery” at the bottom of the page. You will need to create a profile to register for the gallery, and answer a few questions about yourself and your writing before you are able to upload your entry (it is also possible to place your work elsewhere on the web and simply submit the URL to the gallery, and if your work is shorter than 500 words you can paste it into the gallery). If you have questions about the contest, please contact Susanmarie Harrington, Director of Writing in the Disciplines at 802-656-0878, or Sue Dinitz, Director of the Writing Center at 802-656-7963.
