JaxbyJax VIII
Student Showcase Writers 

We are thrilled to announce that poet Andres Rojas will award the inaugural Dr. James Robert Cobb Student Writer Awards to six student writers at the JaxbyJax Literary Arts Festival Student Showcase on Saturday, October 16, 2021. There will be three poetry winners and three prose winners. Cash prizes are $250 for 1st place, and $125 each for 2nd and 3rd places.

Rojas says, "These awards are given to selected student writer participants at JaxbyJax in memory of Dr. James R. Cobb, a professor at Florida State College at Jacksonville's Kent Campus for over 20 years. He was a life-long educator and supporter of higher education for all who aspired to it. Dr. Cobb was a mentor and a model for broad-minded but rigorous thought to his students."

JaxbyJax is grateful to Rojas for honoring the memory of a beloved teacher by encouraging student writers and celebrating their work.
