The Montserrat Writing Prize competition is open to students currently enrolled in Montserrat. The selection committee, composed of the director and cluster directors of Montserrat, presents the award every spring semester to three students for papers written in their Montserrat seminars during the current academic year. Submissions may include critical essays, creative writing, film reviews, scientific reports, and reflections, to name a few. Questions should be addressed to Pr. Alison Ludden (email@example.com), director of Montserrat.
Grateful acknowledgement is made to an anonymous donor for the funds to support the prize.
