The 2018 Fitzcarraldo Editions Essay Prize is now open for submissions. An annual competition for unpublished writers initially made possible by an Arts Council grant in 2015, the prize awards £3,000 to the best proposal for a book-length essay (minimum 25,000 words) by a writer resident in the UK and Ireland who has yet to secure a publishing deal.
*
Submissions are open from 1 January to 15 March 2018 and will be judged by an editorial committee put together for this purpose. The judges will be looking for proposals for essays that explore and expand the possibilities of the essay form, with no restrictions on theme or subject matter. In addition to the £3,000 prize, which will be in the form of an advance against publication with Fitzcarraldo Editions, the winner will have the opportunity to spend up to three months in residency at the Mahler & LeWitt Studios in Spoleto, Italy, during the summer of 2018, to work on their book. The book will then be published by Fitzcarraldo Editions.
*
The Fitzcarraldo Editions Essay Prize aims to find the best emerging essay writers and to give them a chance to develop and showcase their talent. It will also provide future winners with their first experiences of publishing a book, from the planning, research and writing of it through to the editing, production and publicity stages.
*
In 2017, Katy Whitehead was awarded the prize for Adventures in Synthetic Fun, an essay exploring the concept of ‘synthetic fun’ coined in the 1960s by Jeremy Sandford, and the changing nature of fun in an era of increasing automation, disputed oppression, widespread affective labour, illusory meritocracy, costly social mobility, divisive politics, and a degraded imagination. In 2016, Matthew McNaught was awarded the inaugural Fitzcarraldo Editions Essay Prize for Immanuel, an essay about faith, doubt and radical religion, inspired in part by his experiences growing up in an evangelical Christian community in the south of England.

World day preservation of Soul There's a day for everything in this world. everyone in some way wants to be reminded And honored - with flowers and cards, etc. They move trade, alavancam business, Strengthen Ngos, therefore celebrate parents, mothers, grandparents, friends and also countries, Gifts of nature, professionals. There's a day for everything. Less day of the soul. I propose that day! There will be opposition. Some will say, no profit! Others will say that soul does not exist, Everything is simply the matter, Neurons, natural process. Religion, will say followers of atheism, From chairs and party cells. How to celebrate the day of something that doesn't exist? The will attract political In Christian vote: Let's go, official The day of the soul as a national holiday. There will be even marches for that day. Processions, tracks: We want soul day in everyone! North Korea will ban, threatening With Warheads to imperialist subversion. Others will say, " anarchist poet" Muslim radicals will say That there is only soul in Islam. I will say that soul has no color, Sob a ira da-Klux-klux-klan. I will say that the soul is the universal good, It transcends borders, languages and sects. In view of the uproar created, I propose that each Celebrate your own soul - every day! Do something for the health and soul of your neighbor, Whoever he is, wherever he is, Wherever it is. Celebrate with prayer of gratitude To the Giver of souls. He plays with the kids from his condo. Be the father of a starving child of bread and affection, On the corner or another continent. Donate to doctors without borders, Serve a decent table for those who have no bread. Be less selfish because selfishness is poison to soul and fills with opportunistic reason From Congress, Executive & "Revoiutionaries". Be a soul taking care of other souls, In your office, pulpit, classroom, hospital duty, market, the fair, in the dark. Wherever it is, even from the window of your house, waving and speaking with sympathy In your neighborhood, day care, on the street, Traveling salesman. Celebrate your soul, from all your heart. It celebrates the soul of the world, taking care of the waters, the birds, forests, the garden of the city. Celebrate the soul of the earth, fight for the purity of the air that everyone breathes. Celebrate your soul! She is your eternal life! Only survivor after passage Fleeting of human adventure.
