The Alexander Grass Humanities Institute and The Writing Seminars invite undergraduates in the Krieger School, but also those fantasists in the Whiting School, to write a story  based on, or inspired by the novel Frankenstein. The writing contest, with an award of $250, and possible publication in The Hopkins Review, is part of a celebration at Homewood of the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication. Frankenstein, indeed, started as a contest, initiated by the spouses, Mary Godwin and Percy Bysshe Shelley, and their friend, Lord Byron.

All submissions can be submitted to Professor Jean McGarry at no later than Friday, October 26, 2018.
