To apply for the Fine Arts Award in writing, the Edgewood College English Department requires a portfolio of your creative writing or journalism, as well as an interview.
The portfolio should consist of your best original work in one or more of the following genres: fiction (one or two short stories, or chapter of a novel); poetry (a minimum of eight poems); or journalism (five or more clippings of your published writing, such as work from a high school newspaper). You may submit a combination of these genres in your portfolio, though the minimum requirements for each still apply. In addition, you may include one or two essays.
Do not send the only copies you have of any piece of writing; the portfolio will not be returned to you. In the interview, be prepared to discuss in some detail your interests in literature and creative writing or journalism.
