The editors of English: the Journal of the English Association are very pleased to initiate in 2017 the opening of an annual essay competition exclusive to postgraduates. We are looking for essays that provide new perspectives on canonical and/or non-canonical Anglophone literatures, and therefore welcome submissions that focus on single author/texts or a range, and which develop original arguments beyond simple close reading, while engaging with recent scholarship in relevant fields.

The competition is open to any postgraduate student who is registered on a doctoral programme at any institution anywhere in the world, by, or within three months of, the submission deadline: September 30th, 2017.

The winner will receive:                                                                                         

  • Publication of the winning essay in English: the Journal of the English Association.
  • £250 cash prize
