Spring 2014

Sponsored by the English Department and the Braithwaite Writing Center, the Scriblerian is a writing contest and on-line journal for students by students. Revived during Fall Semester 2004 after a two-year hiatus, the essay competition is organized each semester by Writing Center tutors for ENGL 1010 and 2010 students. Winning essays are published on-line on the English Department website and past winners were also published in the print textbook SUU Guide to English Composition 2010-2011.

The Spring 2014 Scriblerian Contest was planned and supervised by Chair Jared Vanhille with the help of Heather Sundblom, Rebekah Tobler, Hannah Ouderkirk, Diana Reese, Chris Christiansen, John Iler, Emily Holmes, Gardner Stevenett, and Mckay West.
