Excerpt from The University Magazine, Vol. 47: November, 1916; New Series, Vol. 34
We are informed by the English Department that there will be more prizes given for literary work this year than ever before. Many will be given by the different publish ing houses, some have already been sent in, others will be given by the English Department. N O doubt the literary societies and the Sigma Upsilon Literary Fraternity will continue their cash prizes for the best short story and sketch respectively.
These are honors not to be despised and, besides, ones that can be won during spare time - say between supper and mail time. They cover all forms Of literature, includ ing the sketch, short story, poem and editorial. We will be glad to receive your article - in fact we want it and in our feeble way will gladly go over it with you and Offer what constructive criticism we can.
Don' t fool yourself into believing you can't win one of these prizes because you haven' t had any experience; these prizes have been won before by some fellow who some time in his life had never written anything for publication. You have the same chance that he once had, - now add a little thought and effort and see how well you succeed.
If you desire your articles published, hand them to any member Of the editorial staff.
