CSU accepting submissions for new $10,000 literary prize

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Do you have a book, collection of short stories, memoirs or essays you have yet to publish? Then, you could be the first-ever winner of an inaugural award from Columbus State University.

The recipient of the Donald L. Jordan Prize for Literary Excellence will receive a $10,000 award and will be offered a publishing contact with DLJ Books, a new publishing imprint being established at CSU.

The award was created through an endowment from Columbus author and entrepreneur, as well as the namesake of the prize, Donald L. Jordan.

“Our contest is open to both established and aspiring writers, but is limited to previously non-published submissions from nationwide,” said Jordan.

Submissions to the contest will be judged by Rosellen Brown, who has authored more than 14 books.

The endowment has also created a professorship in creative writing and a study abroad service-learning program.
