Meringoff Awards

The ALSCW, in its desire to foster and recognize excellence in the student writing of English essays at the secondary school level, is pleased to offer an annual essay essay contest made possible through the generous support of Stephen Meringoff.

The winners of the 2012 Essay Award are listed on our news page.


The ALSCW/Vermont Studio Center Fellowship provides a one-month VSC residency for a writer who is a current member of the ALSCW. It is open to all of the Association's creative writers and literary translators. To be eligible for the Fellowship, please make sure you have paid your 2011 dues.

We are pleased to partner with the VSC for this fellowship and for such other literary ventures as LiT (Literature in Translation). You can read about the first LiT forum – which featured Clare Cavanagh and Adam Zagajewski (also participants in our broadside gallery!) – on page 4 of Literary Matters 3.4


Members are invited to submit information of interest—about job openings, fellowship opportunities, calls for papers, recent publications, awards, and honors—for posting on alscw.org.
