University of Michigan announces Hopwood winners

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—The University of Michigan recently announced winners of the winter term Avery and Jule Hopwood Awards.

The awards are funded by a bequest from Avery Hopwood, a 1905 U-M graduate and successful Broadway playwright, and Jule Hopwood, his mother. Past winners include Arthur Miller, John Ciardi and Marge Piercy.

The Hopwood Awards are judged in two phases. A local screening committee comprising writers from the University and the surrounding community recommends manuscripts to be forwarded to national judges, who evaluate the writings and assign points to each work. The point totals indicate the level of financial reward to be given to a specific piece of writing. The winners, listed by their hometowns, are:
