Subject: 	CFP: 2007 Literature Compass Graduate Prize - October 15th 
Deadline!

Unique in both range and approach, Literature Compass 
(http://www.literature-compass.com) is an online-only journal publishing 
peer-reviewed survey articles from across the entire discipline.

The editors of Literature Compass are now inviting submissions for the 
2007 Graduate Essay Prize.

Win $200/?100 of free Blackwell books and have your article published in 
Literature Compass!

There will be a prize-winning graduate essay for each of the 9 sections 
on Literature Compass:

Medieval
Renaissance
Shakespeare
Seventeenth Century
Eighteenth Century
Romanticism
Victorian
Twentieth Century and Contemporary
American

NOTE: The Renaissance prize is sponsored by the Society for Renaissance 
Studies. In addition to $200/?100 of free Blackwell books and 
publication in Literature Compass, the Renaissance section winner will 
receive a cheque for $200/?100 and have their essay published in the 
Bulletin of the Society for Renaissance Studies.

DEADLINE: 15 October, 2007.

GUIDELINES

The prize is open to all graduate students engaged in study at a college 
or university after their first degree and having not yet completed 
their doctorate.

Those entering can choose their own topic; however, as with articles 
already published on Literature Compass, submitted essays should have a 
survey element, putting the chosen topic in context for the 
non-specialist. The incorporation of advanced graduate work is strongly 
encouraged.

The upper word limit is 5000 words, INCLUDING endnotes and bibliography.

Literature Compass Graduate Essays should be submitted by email as a 
Word document to:

 .

Graduates must specify:

- which section they are entering their essay for
- provide the details of their affiliation
- provide their supervisor's name and email address

Only one entry per person.

Winners will be announced at the 2007 MLA conference.

Good luck!
