Dame Ivy Compton-Burnett Prize 2018

Entries are invited from any current Pembroke undergraduate or graduate student for the ninth Dame Ivy Compton-Burnett Prize. The Prize was established to encourage and reward creative writing, and in honour of the novelist Dame Ivy Compton-Burnett. Last year’s winner was Sarah Christensen. The prize, of £400, will be awarded to the best original composition, in poetry, prose, or drama. The Judges will include an English Fellow and a writer or publisher outside Cambridge.

Entries, which may be up to 2,000 words in length, must be received in the Tutorial Office by 5.00 pm by Friday 27 April 2018.  They should be typed and anonymous; a covering letter bearing the author’s name should be enclosed with the entry, and both letter and entry should bear the same motto or device, to ensure anonymity (you are welcome to email your entry to Sally.Clowes@pem.cam.ac.uk). The winning entry will be published in the College Gazette.
