The Fountain Essay Contest 2018

20:21 0

The Fountain Magazine invites entries for the Essay Contest 2018.

That perfect cup of coffee in the morning. Seeing an old friend for the first time in years. A big meal with your family. All of them make us feel grateful – grateful for loved ones and grateful to be alive. Gratitude is an important part of the human experience. And it’s not only for people; animals show gratitude to those who care for them.

The question is: Why do we feel grateful? What should be we grateful for? And even, should we still be grateful when we’re depressed or when our lives are a mess? For this year’s Essay Contest, we want to hear from you. What are you grateful for? Who are you grateful to? Are you grateful? We can’t wait to read your responses.

Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2019
Winners will be announced on April 30, 2019.

Contest open to all writers worldwide.  One entry per person.

JASNA International Essay Contest for Students

20:12 0

JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America) conducts an annual student Essay Contest to foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen's work. Several hundred students compete for scholarship awards each year.

Who can participate?

The contest is open to students world-wide in three divisions:

  • High School:  students and home-schooled students enrolled at the high school level during the contest year
  • College/University:  students enrolled in at least six credit hours of course work at a junior college, college, or university during the contest year
  • Graduate School:  students enrolled during the contest year in at least three credit hours of graduate course work at a college or university leading to an advanced degree 

Membership in JASNA is not required to enter the contest.

2019 Contest Topic

In honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey, essays on following topic are invited:

Northanger Abbey can be described as a book about books. There is, of course, the well-known "defense of the novel,” but characters also discuss their reading habits, name specific novels, and even consider history books. In her works, Austen often makes use of fiction, poetry or plays, either explicitly or indirectly. Explore how she does this in Northanger Abbey. High school students may bring in another Austen novel but are not required to do so; undergraduate and graduate students must bring in one or more additional novels.

The deadline for 2019 Essay Contest submissions is June 3, 2019.

Essay Contest Awards
JASNA awards scholarships to winners in each of the three divisions:

First Place:  $1,000 scholarship and free registration and two nights’ lodging for JASNA’s upcoming Annual General Meeting (Transportation to the conference is not provided.)
Second Place:  $500 scholarship
Third Place:  $250 scholarship

Winners and their mentors each receive a one-year JASNA membership. In addition, each winner receives a set of Norton Critical Editions of Jane Austen's novels. The winning essays are published on the website.
