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, Jeremiah Blue, of Phoenix, Ariz., won for his untitled prose submission, the third year the Etruscan Prize was awarded for a work of creative nonfiction. Prize recipients from prior years were awarded for works of fiction, memoir, and poetry.
