Paragraph Anniversary Prize

The editors of Paragraph are pleased to announce that a prize will be awarded for an outstanding article submitted for publication between 1 October 2021 and 30 September 2022. Submissions can be on any topic appropriate to the journal’s remit, which is to explore critical theory in general and its application to literature, other arts and society. The winning article will be published in 2023 to correspond with the journal’s 40th anniversary.

The competition is open to both early-career researchers and established scholars. All submissions are evaluated by the members of the Editorial Committee. The winning article will be published in the July 2023 issue of the journal, and its author will receive a sum of £500. Other essays submitted for the prize may also be published in the same or subsequent numbers of Paragraph. Entries should therefore be no longer than 6,000 words and should be formatted according to the journal’s conventions which can be found here:
