Also Seen: Iris annual fiction competition for under 19s

Seen on the Classicists list:

We are delighted to announce the details of the Iris annual under 19s fiction competition 2012!

This year we are looking for pieces inspired by the figure of the “locked-out lover” in Roman love poetry, in line with the theme of Roman love poetry in the forthcoming Iris annual edition. The maximum length for entries is 30 lines, and entries can be in poetry or prose. Entries should be emailed to editor AT with the subject line “IRIS COMPETITION”, and your name and age. We are also delighted to announce that Madeline Miller, author of the bestselling novel The Song of Achilles, will be judging the competition.

The competition aims to encourage creative responses to the Classics in schools and amongst young people across the UK and beyond, in line with The Iris Project’s mission to promote Classics to a wide audience in an inclusive, creative and engaging way.
