The Etruscan Prize is awarded each year to a member of the Wilkes Creative Writing student community who submits one page of any genre (prose, script, poetry or play) that sings. Since 2010, Etruscan Press has awarded a Wilkes University Creative Writing graduate student for their writing excellence.
Most recently, Ronnie Stephens, of The Colony, Texas, won for his poetry submission entitled “What I Know Now,” the third year the Etruscan Prize was awarded for a work of poetry. Prize recipients from prior years were awarded for works of fiction, memoir, and poetry.
