LIKE A SPORTS BANQUET FOR YOUNG WRITERS ...
But With Much Better Food & Music
The state winners in prose and poetry, to be announced at the Mark Twain House & Museum ceremony, will have their work considered for publication in Connecticut Review, the literary journal published by the Connecticut State University System (CSUS).
They will also receive cash awards.
Since 1998, the Trust has given more than $174,000 to Connecticut's best young writers. About 6,000 students have participated in the program.
