Mary Louise Rea Short Story Award

Mary Louise Rea Short Story Award


This award is given to the author of the best short story written by any student who has been enrolled in a creative writing course in the last 18 months and who is currently an undergraduate student at IUPUI. This award is made possible by a gift from the late Mary Louise Rea, Professor Emerita of English.


Qualified applicants will be students enrolled or have completed the following courses W103, W203, W206, W301, W303, W401, W403 and W411 at IUPUI within the last 18 months. Students may submit two (2) stories. Students may revise and edit their work before submitting it. Works submitted for the Rea Short Story Award should not derive from the author’s real-world experiences and may not also be submitted for the Creative Nonfiction awards. Do not put your name on any submitted manuscript.

Recipients of the award will be determined in a blind reading competition by an external judge chosen by English Department faculty in the IU School of Liberal Arts on IUPUI's campus.
