Harman Writing Contest
Every semester, the Harman program holds a writing contest that showcases the strong writing talents of the Baruch community. Students are given the opportunity to have their work read by that semester’s Writer-in-Residence and be considered for a monetary prize. Contest subjects have varied from poetry to scriptwriting, graphic storytelling to narrative non-fiction, based on the Harman Writer’s area of expertise.
Winners of the competition are featured in the following semester’s issue of Encounters Magazine, Baruch’s literary and arts publication.
Our Spring 2020 Fiction Writing Competition deadline will be announced mid-April.
