The John Engman Writing Prize, a literary competition sponsored by Murphy Square and the Augsburg English Department, is awarded each year to promising writers. This year’s submission deadline has been extended to December 31st. Judges of the competition will select winners in each of the categories of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.
To enter writers must submit the following:
Short Fiction – One complete short story of not more than 15 pages.
Creative Non-fiction – One complete piece not longer than 15 pages.
Poetry – At least three poems.
All writers must be enrolled at Augsburg University and may enter each of the categories as often as they wish, but they may only win in one. Names of writers must not be on the works submitted.
Entries must be submitted through Moodle.
The direct link to the site is: https://moodle.augsburg.edu/moodlecommunity/course/view.php?id=795
The prize was named in honor of poet and Augsburg alumnus John Engman who died in 1996. Judges for the contest are English Department faculty members. The judges reserve the right to withhold awards if entries in specific categories are not of winning quality; they may also increase the number of awards in a category that has attracted entries of obvious merit. Winners will be notified in January and will be awarded gift cards to the university bookstore.

Our cafe has been shut down and we have students living in the dorms who rely on meal plans to eat. If you are looking for a way to help please consider bringing in some food to sustain them so they don’t have to worry about how they are eating today. There are students who are stranded here with no way of supporting or feeding themselves.
We have approximately 117 students living in the dorms at the Lowry building. They are also in need of boxes because they are being asked to move out.
They could really use some community support.
If you or someone you know has boxes, bins, or food to donate to students, please drop them off at the Residence Hall at 345 Wabasha St. N. Saint Paul, MN 55102 (Sign on the building says Gray Duck)
Call our RA duty phone at 651-324-1609 when you arrive and we’ll meet you in the lobby with a cart to grab any boxes you may have!
You can apparently also have food delivered to the commons in the secure area of McNally. Looks like people have been donating pizzas and whatnot.
