As the oldest literary and arts review in the UK, The London Magazine has a long history of publishing great essayists; works by the likes of T.S. Eliot can be found in their archives.
In The London Magazine’s inaugural Essay Competition, they hope to find the most exciting new essays to reaffirm and develop the magazine’s strong nonfiction tradition.
All submissions must be previously unpublished and no longer than 1500 words. They are looking for non-academic, original work “with a powerful voice that is not afraid to surprise.”
There is no set theme or subject.
Entry fee: £10
