The Adamson Awards
An annual highlight of the English Department is the Adamson Student Writing Awards. These awards are presented for student excellence in fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and non-fiction, and are open to undergratuate and graduate students throughout the Carnegie Mellon University community. Winners are selected by off-campus writers and are presented in a formal event featuring a distinguished visiting writer. The Adamson Awards are presented in honor of Pauline B. Adamson at the bequest of her husband, the late Clarence H. Adamson, as a testimonial to their marriage and her interest in the English Language and American Literature.
For more information on eligibility, submitting work to be considered for the awards, judging, and other related categories, please see the 2014 Adamson Award Guidelines [.pdf]
