SMCA Spring Writing Competition Deadline May 11 (By Stephanie Stewart, English Instructor)

Spring is in the air! And with that, change and inspiration often follow. So, pick up your pens and pencils, and help us kick off St. Michael's inaugural Spring Writing Competition - hosted by the English department. 

This year’s theme, as you might guess, is “Quarantine.” From closing school to cancelling sporting events to family bonding to missing friends to inventing new ways to spend our time, we have all been significantly impacted by the shutdown. We welcome a variety of writing genres and will divide the entries into two categories: Creative Writing and Expository. 
Winners will be awarded prizes and will appear in ERIN, our SMCA Literary Magazine! Read below for further direction.
  • What: Submit your poems, short stories, argumentative essays, expositories, personal narratives, etc. regarding the “Quarantine”.
  • When: Submit by May 11 and winners will be announced on May 15
  • Where: Submit entries and/or questions to me at (
