Postgraduates from institutions throughout the EU are invited to submit projects that exhibit formal or creative daring. These might include creative writing (up to 2000 words), images, films (up to 15 minutes), digital artefacts, performances, or musical compositions.
The prize is a collaboration between the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London and Cove Park, Scotland’s International Artist Residency Centre. Winners receive £1000 and spend the first two weeks of September at Cove Park, engaging in a residency and showcase. All shortlisted works are given a public performance at the prize-giving and are written up in the journal Textual Practice.
The prize will judged by Lisa Appignanesi, Michael Berkeley, Rachel Cusk, Dexter Dalwood, Julian Forrester, Jeremy Harding, Deborah Levy, Stephen Romer, and Fiona Shaw.
The deadline for the prize is Friday 31 March 2017. Entries should be submitted firstname.lastname@example.org (or posted to Dr Lara Feigel, Director of the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture, English Department, 22 Kingsway, London, WC2B 6LE).
How important or possible is it for the contemporary artist or writer to keep breaking formal boundaries? Is this compatible with the demands of the marketplace and how does this differ in the art world and the literary world? How can we recognise the new when we are necessarily steeped in the old? Here acclaimed artist Dexter Dalwood and writer Eimear McBride will explore these questions in a discussion that launches the 2017 Ivan Juritz Prize.
