Winter Contest | Two Winners for Handmade Journals

Hamline English Department is excited to announce our second contest this year this time with two winners!

Because our last contest focused on creative writing specifically, this time we want the theme to be even broader so anyone who couldn’t enter the first time whether because of theme or time constraints can now. We just want to excite you about submitting here! Any creative work is welcome (in any genre or creative form), but also this time you’ll be able to enter the drawing with any submission allowed our blog (see the restrictions and guidelines for that, here).

For anyone who needs a creative boost, the Hamline English social media accounts will be posting weekly writing prompts on Facebookand Twitter to spark your mind.


All entries will be posted on the Hamline Lit Link blog, and there will be two winners who will each win a handmade journal from Treasures Delights Etc so that they can fill the empty pages with their “to be read” list, essay ideas, interview questions, or whatever else they need to note down.


Inger, of Treasures Delights Etc, was kind enough to donate the prize for this contest because of her “love for words, fonts, graphic design, reading and anything creative.” Her support is based on a belief that “writing is fundamental” and gives someone so much they can do.

The prize must be claimed in person, however anyone who wants to submit to the Hamline Lit Link can, only the contest is limited.

Writers will have more time, this time, to draft their entry. The contest starts now and will close officially on February 1st at 12 am, giving you plenty of time to send something in.

Submissions must be emailed to HamlineLitLinkSubmissions[at] The subject line should include the title of your piece, the submission category, the word count, and CONTEST ENTRY.

Example: Randolph’s Mystic Adventure [Short Story – 1,243 words] | CONTEST ENTRY

The submission itself should be attached via Microsoft Word document or shared via Google Documents (embed the share link into the email). In the body of the email, include a personal biographical statement in the third person. Also include your name, your affiliation with Hamline (including class year if a student), and your preferred contact information.
