LITERATURE COMPASS GRADUATE ESSAY PRIZE!

Submissions are invited for the 2006 Literature Compass Graduate Essay Prize.

Literature Compass (http://www.literature-compass.com) publishes peer reviewed survey articles from across the entire discipline. Experienced researchers, teaching faculty, and advanced students will all benefit from the accessible, informative articles that provide overviews of current research.

Entries for the 2006 Graduate Essay Prize should contain a survey element which ensures the essay remains accessible to the non-specialist. The incorporation of advanced graduate work is strongly encouraged.

There will be a prize awarded for each of the 9 sections on Literature Compass:

- Medieval
- Renaissance
- Shakespeare
- Seventeenth Century
- Eighteenth Century
- Romanticism
- The Victorians
- Twentieth Century & Contemporary
- American

WHAT DO I WIN?
Each section winner will receive $200/£100 of free Blackwell books and have their article published on Literature Compass (http://www.literature-compass.com).

CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN TOPIC?
Those entering can choose their own topic; however, as with Compass articles already published on Literature Compass, submitted essays should have a survey element, putting the chosen topic in context for the non-specialist.

IS THERE A WORD LIMIT?
The upper word limit is 5000 words, including endnotes and bibliography.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
September 1st 2006.

WHERE SHOULD I SEND MY ARTICLE?
Essays should be submitted by email as a Word document to LICOeditorial_at_oxon.blackwellpublishing.com. Graduates must specify which section they are entering their essay for, and give details of their affiliation, and their supervisor's name and email address.

HOW IS MY ESSAY REVIEWED?
The Review Panel for each section will comprise the relevant Section Editor(s) and three Editorial Board members. All submissions will be read 'blind'.

WHEN WILL THE WINNERS BE ANNOUNCED?
The winners will be announced at the 2006 MLA Convention.
