The Keats-Shelley Memorial Association invites applications for the Twelfth Annual Keats-Shelley Prize, sponsored by The Cowley Foundation, The School of English, University of St Andrews, and The Liberal Magazine. There are two competitions, open to all: for an essay and a poem. The essay can be on any aspect of the life or work of John Keats, P. B. Shelley, Mary Shelley or Lord Byron, and should be of 2,000 – 3,000 words, including quotations. Preference will be given to entries showing originality of thought and written in a clear and accessible style. The poem (which may be a narrative) must be original, unpublished and not a parody. It should focus on the theme “Find.” It may be of any length up to 50 lines. Prizes will be presented the prizes at the Annual Awards Ceremony in London in October. The closing date for entries is 30th June 2009. For more information see the KSMA Noticeboard at http://www.keats-shelley.co.uk/noticeboard.html.
