Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award

The Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award is presented each spring in memory of Jackie Mosier, class of 2008. The award is presented to a student of junior-level standing who shows promise and dedication as a creative writer and who also engages in generous participation with the English literature and writing community.

The awardee receives a $2,500 tuition credit the following fall term. The recipient also has the opportunity for an individual conference with a selected author as part of the following year's Marylhurst Reading Series, and to read a selection from his or her work as part of that author's reading.

A plaque with each year's recipient is displayed in Flavia Hall. The Jackie Mosier Emerging Writer Award has been made possible by the generosity of John Mosier and the family of Jackie Mosier.

Past recipients:

Elizabeth Moscoso and Darla Mottram, 2014
Carrie Padian and Nate Wilkerson, 2013
Braeden Dillenbeck, 2012
