Opportunities for Students

The Lindsay Crane Center believes in the abilities and talents of Hiram students and works to develop opportunities for them to grow and learn both on-campus and off.


With internships, students can explore careers and gain professional experience that makes them appealing to employers after graduation. The Lindsay-Crane Center works closely with the Career Center to identify writing-related positions, advertise them to students, and help students develop application materials.

Conferences and Publications

Conferences and publications are great ways for students to find an audience for their creative and scholarly work. Faculty affiliated with the Lindsay-Crane Center assist students with identifying conferences and publications appropriate for their work and learning about the submission process. Students can also apply for funding to assist in attending conferences through the Vencl-Carr Fund, administered by the Associate Dean’s Office.

Writing Contests

The Lindsay-Crane Center sponsors writing contests for Hiram College students in the genres of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. They are judged by published authors working in that genre and offer students the opportunity to learn how to submit their work professionally.
