2017 EUGENE ENGLAND MEMORIAL PERSONAL ESSAY CONTEST
In the spirit of Gene’s writings, entries should relate to Latter-day Saint experience, theology, or worldview. Essays will be judged by noted Mormon authors and professors of literature. Winners will be notified by email and announced in our Winter issue and on Dialogue’s website. After the announcement, all other entrants will be free to submit their essays elsewhere.
First place, $300; second place, $200; and third place $100
1. Up to three entries may be submitted by any one author. Send manuscript in PDF or Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2017.
2. Each essay must be double-spaced. All essays must be 3500 words or fewer. The author’s name should not appear on any page of the essay.
3. In the body of the email, the author must state the essay’s title and the author’s name, address, telephone number, and email. The author must also include language attesting that the entry is her or his own work, that it has not been previously published, that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere, and that it will not be submitted to other publishers until after the contest. If the entry wins, Dialogue retains first-publication rights though publication is not guaranteed. The author retains all literary rights. Dialogue discourages the use of pseudonyms; if used, the author must identify the real and pen names and the reasons for writing under the pseudonym. Failure to comply with the rules will result in disqualification.
