Call for Papers: Avery Review Essay Prize 2018.
The Avery Review is excited to announce and invite submissions for our first-ever Essay Prize for emerging writers. The call is open to current students and recent graduates, whether in schools of architecture or elsewhere (eligibility details below). In keeping with the mission of the journal, we hope to receive submissions that use the genres of the review and the critical essay to explore the urgent ideas and problems that animate the field of architecture. We’re looking for essays that test and expand the author’s intellectual commitments—theoretical, architectural, and political—through the work of others.
Submissions for the Avery Review Essay Prize should take the form of critical essays on books, buildings, and other architectural media, broadly defined. The Avery Review is delighted to receive work that was developed in the context of classes and seminars as well as independent writing. The Avery Review essays are typically 2,500–3,500 words in length and have some object of review at their core. Texts should be submitted as double-spaced Word files without images; you may provide six to eight images compiled into a separate PDF (keep attachments to 3mb max please). Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current undergraduates, current masters-level students, and recent graduates (after 12/1/2016) are eligible; please include your student status in your submission email. The Avery Review encourages submissions from any field of study that takes architecture as a subject.
Deadline: 31 January 2018.
