2021 Fitzcarraldo Editions/Mahler & Lewitt Studios Essay Prize
Deadline: Mon 15 Mar 2021
The Fitzcarraldo Editions/Mahler & LeWitt Studios Essay Prize is an annual competition for unpublished writers residing in Great Britain and Ireland. We are looking for essays that explore and expand the possibilities of the essay form> No restrictions on theme or subject matter.

The Prize aims to find the best emerging essay writers and to give them a chance to develop and showcase their talent. It also provides the winner with their first experience of publishing a book, from the planning, research and writing of it through to the editing, production and publicity stages.

The Prize awards £3,000 to the best proposal for a book-length essay (minimum 25,000 words). The winner also has the opportunity to spend up to three months in residency at the Mahler & LeWitt Studios in Spoleto, Italy, to work on their book.

The book will then be published by Fitzcarraldo Editions.

The judges are Joanna Biggs, Brian Dillon, Joanna Kavenna, Max Porter and Jacques Testard.
