As the oldest literary and arts review in the UK, The London Magazine has a long history of publishing great essayists.
In their inaugural Essay Competition, they hope to find the most exciting new essays to reaffirm and develop the magazine's strong non-fiction tradition.
All essays submitted must be previously unpublished and no longer than 1500 words. There is no set theme or subject. They are looking for non-academic, original work with a powerful voice that is not afraid to surprise. The competition is open to international entries.
Some important information to note:
- Entry fee: £10 per essay | Subsequent entries: £5 per essay
- Submissions period: 1st July 2017 - 31st August 2017
- Prizes: (1). £500; (2). £300; (3). £200.
The winning essay will be published in a future issue of The London Magazine, and the second and third placed essays will appear on their website.
