Robert H. Gildart Creative Writing Awards (Fiction, Poetry, Drama)

A gift to the English Department made possible the creation of the Robert H. Gildart Creative Writing Awards. These are cash prizes designed to honor the career of Bob Gildart, who taught at Albion College for 25 years and cared deeply about the quality of student writing. The prizes will be awarded each year to sophomores at Albion College. Up to three awards in each category (Poetry, Fiction, Drama) will be made.
