DIAGRAM's yearly Essay Contest encourages submissions of essays—essays in an expansive sense, meaning essay as experiment, essay as heterogenous and sometimes strange or unruly beast.
We invite your submissions of unpublished (in a serial/book or on a non-personal website—blogs etc. are okay) essays. ("Unpublished" means you must be able to assign us first serial rights, if your work is selected.)
To enter: Get us your essay entry of up to 10,000 words with a $17 reading fee by 12.15.15.
The prize is $1000 + publication. This contest is judged by Nicole Walker and Ander Monson. We'll shoot for publishing several of our finalists with the winner in a spring issue of DIAGRAM, as we have the last few years.
