The Mallard‘s annual essay competition is now open for submissions!
The theme for this year is Rogues Gallery; we are asking you to write about someone who is ignored by history or not given the credit they deserve.
Please submit your entry to email@example.com.
- ROGUE FACTOR: Rogues must be shown to be “remarkable, unconventional, eccentric, authentic, or anomalous” in some way.
- OBSCURITY FACTOR: Writers should choose Rogues that can be justly described as “obscure” or “less well-known about than they should be”.
- HUMAN FACTOR: A Rogue can be any real person: dead or alive, British or non-British.
- WORD COUNT: Writers should not exceed a 2000-word cap.
- DEADLINE: Submissions should be entered throughout the month of August, and will be published here.
- First Prize: £50, and published in the September issue of the Mallard magazine
- Second and Third Prize: £25
Winners will be chosen by the Chairman, Jake Scott, and announced on the 10th September 2021.
