The London Magazine Essay Competition 2017

Found in: News

Essay competition

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All essays submitted must be previously unpublished and no longer than 1500 words.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.
