About Our Judges

All Hopwood Contests require enrollment in a qualifying writing course. Please see our rules and details on these contests listed below.

The Hopwood Award Theodore Roethke Prize (Fall Term)

The Hopwood Award Theodore Roethke Prize is an award of $5,000 for the best long poem or poetic sequence written by a University of Michigan student, undergraduate or graduate. 

Rules of Eligibility

This contest is open to all U-M students, with no particular course or hour requirements. There are the following restrictions:

  • There is a 12-page minimum length.
  • No student may enter more than one poem or poetic sequence.
  • The same poem shall not be entered in any other fall term contest, with the exception of the Roy W. Cowden Memorial Fellowship competition.
  • No poem that has won another award may be entered in these contests.
  • No student who has won this award may compete again in the contest, nor may a winning poem be subsequently entered in any other Hopwood Program contest, with the exception of fellowship/scholarship contests.
  • No poem that has been published in a medium other than a college or high school magazine or newspaper may be entered in the contest.

Manuscript

Entries should be in 10 or 12 point font, with a left-hand margin of at least 1 1/2 inches. A contestant must use a pen name--entirely different from his or her real name. This name should only appear on the title page, nowhere else in the manuscript.  Submissions should be in PDF format. The PDF must have a title page on which shall appear: 

  • The title
  • The pen name
  • The contest and division entered (e.g., Hopwood Award Theodore Roethke Prize)

If you receive need-based financial aid and would like us to delay payment until the beginning of the Spring term (May) so your award won’t alter your current financial aid allocation, please indicate that on the form.

Prize Deadline

The deadline for submission is absolutely no later than the first Wednesday in December, by noon. All contest deadlines must be enforced to the minute so contestants are strongly urged to turn in their submissions early. The contestants will be notified in January and the Hopwood Award Theodore Roethke Prize will be presented in the April Hopwood Awards Ceremony. For further information, inquire at the Hopwood Room, 1176 Angell Hall (734.764.6296).

 

Underclassmen (Fall Term)

Rules of Eligibility

Any first or second-year student regularly enrolled in the following courses is eligible for this competition:

  • English 124, 125, 223, 225, 226, 301, 302, 323, 325, or 340
  • Sweetland Center for Writing, Writing courses carrying at least 2 credits
  • Communication 290, 301, or 302
  • Great Books 191
  • Classical Civilization 101 in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
  • Residential College courses 100, 220, 221, 222, 300, 325, or 326

Certain other writing courses may also be used to qualify. Check with the Hopwood Assistant Director to determine course eligibility. A contestant may use as a qualifying course one taken in the past two years. Spring/Summer writing courses may also be used for qualification. The rule requiring a writing course is unwaivable. A literature course does not qualify a student.

In this contest three types of writing are eligible: nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. In each of these fields, prizes usually ranging from $500 to $2,000 are awarded. Entries in each of the three fields are limited as follows:

  • The page limits for the poetry division are 10–25 pages.
  • The page limits for the nonfiction and fiction divisions are 15–40 pages. All non-fictional prose, including creative nonfiction, will be considered in the nonfiction division.
  • Pages should be numbered consecutively. The limits are for the TOTAL number of pages in a manuscript. For example, submitting a 6 page story together with a 9 page story would satisfy the short fiction minimum page limit.
  • A student may submit manuscripts in more than one field.
  • No Underclassmen Contest submission may be entered in any other fall term contest, with the exception of the Cowden Fellowship Contest.
  • Only the written portions of mixed-media manuscripts may be submitted.

Entries should be doubled-spaced in 10 or 12 point font, with a left-hand margin of at least one and one-half inches. Poems need not be double-spaced throughout. A contestant must use a pen name--entirely different from his or her real name.  This name should only appear on the title page, nowhere else in the manuscript.  Submissions should be in PDF format. 

The PDF must have a title page on which shall appear: 

  • The title
  • The pen name
  • The contest and division entered (e.g., Underclassmen Hopwood Poetry).

The committee reserves the right to keep on file one copy of each winning manuscript.  The committee will not be held responsible for the safety of any manuscript presented in the contest.

Note: If you participate in need-based aid programs, be aware that your award is considered a "resource" and could impact your award package.

Contest Deadline

Due no later than 12 noon, the first Wednesday in December.  Please be advised the deadline is enforced to the minute.

Announcement of Awards

Names of the winners in this competition will be announced early in the winter term. A manuscript that has received a prize in the Contest for Underclassmen will not be eligible for any subsequent Hopwood contest. The committee reserves the right to keep on file one copy of each winning manuscript.

Graduate and Undergraduate (Winter Term)

Awards are offered in the following genres: Novel, drama, screenplay, nonfiction (any form of nonfiction prose, including creative nonfiction), short fiction and poetry.

Rules of Eligibility

The awards are classified as Graduate Awards or Undergraduate Awards in the nonfiction (any form of nonfiction prose, including creative nonfiction), short fiction, and poetry divisions. The novel, drama, and screenplay divisions are combined categories in which undergraduates and graduate students compete together.

Page limits:

  • Novel — 100 page minimum
  • Drama — approximately 50–60 pages (one act), 80–100 pages (full length).  Two one-act plays may be submitted, but only one full-length play.
  • Screenplay — 90–110 pages
  • Undergraduate Nonfiction — 15-40 pages
  • Undergraduate Short Fiction — 15–40 pages
  • Undergraduate Poetry  — 10–40 pages
  • Graduate Nonfiction  —15-50 pages
  • Graduate Short Fiction — 15–50 pages
  • Graduate Poetry —10–50 pages

Pages should be numbered consecutively. The limits are for the TOTAL number of pages in a manuscript. For example, submitting a 6 page story together with a 9 page story would satisfy the short fiction minimum page limit.

The contest is open to all University of Michigan students, whether candidates for a degree or not, who are regularly enrolled in the University. Undergraduates must carry at least six hours of regular University work each term. Graduate students must also be regularly enrolled in the University and must carry at least 3 credits each term.

To be eligible, a student must have been enrolled in one course in writing for 2–3 credits within the past two years or be taking a writing course in the current term. Courses may be taken in the departments of English, Communication, Theatre and Drama, Screen Arts and Cultures, or in the Residential College (a list of qualifying courses is listed below). 

This rule requiring a writing course is unwaivable; a literature course does not qualify a student.

No graduate student may enter the Hopwood Contest for more than a total of four times or re-enter an area in which he or she has previously won an award, though he or she may compete in other areas.

Students who have been enrolled in the fall term but will not be enrolled in the following term (e.g., December graduates) may compete, provided they have fulfilled the above requirements. Such students must submit their manuscripts not later than December 18 by noon. Students studying abroad may submit by noon on the first Friday in February.

No manuscript or part of a manuscript that has received an award in any contest administered by the Hopwood Program may be entered in any subsequent contest. This rule does not apply to contestants in the Cowden, Kasdan, and Miller Scholarship competitions.

The same material may not be submitted in different categories (for example, nonfiction and fiction or short fiction and novel).

Students may submit manuscripts with changes up until the 12 noon  deadline.

No manuscript or part of a manuscript that has been published in a medium other than a college magazine or college newspaper may be entered in any contest. However, work that has been accepted for publication but that has not appeared in print by the time of the contest deadline may be entered.

Only original work may be entered in the contest. Collaborations, translations, and adaptations are not acceptable. Only the written portion of mixed-media manuscripts may be submitted.

Except in the case of novels, only completed works (as opposed to works-in-progress) may be submitted.

The committee reserves the right to retain for its files one copy of each winning manuscript.

Each contestant winning an award will be required to sign the following statement: "In case of the publication of the manuscript submitted by me in the Hopwood Contest, and forming the basis for the award I have received, I agree to indicate in a footnote or otherwise that this manuscript was granted a prize in the Avery Hopwood and Jule Hopwood Contest for [year of award] at The University of Michigan."

Note: If you participate in need-based aid programs, be aware that your award is considered a "resource" and could impact your award package.

Hopwood Graduate and Undergraduate Contest Judges

The University committee in charge of the contests will appoint judges of national reputation—two for each area—to read the manuscripts and make recommendations. When the number of manuscripts in any division of the contest becomes so large that it is impracticable for the national judges to read all entries, a preliminary selection will be made by experienced judges in the University and Ann Arbor community. After considering the reports of the national judges, the Hopwood committee will make decisions concerning the awards, for which it is finally responsible.
