Here’s an interesting announcement from Virginia Quarterly Review about an admirable project. Helping to develop effective critical voices is truly an investment in our collective literary future. (But remember you read about this here first, and please be kind to my books, guys!)--
Young Reviewers Contest
Come September, we’re holding a competition to cultivate young critics under the age of thirty. The winning review will be published in VQR, and the winner will receive a $1,000 prize and a publishing contract to write another three reviews for us (worth $3,000). For more information, see our Young Reviewers Contest webpage.
