Contests and Scholarship

To recognize and celebrate the work of Theodore Roethke, SVSU provides an award in the form of a $3,000 scholarship to a serious creative writer (no matter their major) every three years, and the Center for Community Writing sponsors a creative writing contest based on Roethke's work for the larger community. For the 2022 Festival, SVSU is collaborating with the Saginaw Transit Authority Regional Services (STARS) to create a mural celebrating Roethke and his work on city bus.
