Consider The Bechtel Prize

My blogging visitors might be interested in submitting an extended version of a great post for consideration in this year's Bechtel Prize (deadline 6/29/07):
The Bechtel Prize is awarded annually in recognition of an exemplary article or essay related to:
  • Creative writing education,
  • Literary studies, and/or
  • The profession of writing.
The winning essay appears in Teachers & Writers magazine, and the author receives a $3,500 honorarium. Possible topics include contemporary issues in classroom teaching, innovative approaches to teaching literary forms and genres, and the intersection between literature and imaginative writing.
