I am delighted to have been long-listed for KCL’s Creative Responses to Modernism with a wee glib closet drama ‘Embark’, all about the different dogs that crop up in salon literature.

Entries were invited from postgraduate students based at the Universities of London and Sussex, with submissions encouraged to ‘continue or challenge the modernist project’ through writing, images, short films, digital artefacts, performances or musical compositions.

The list also features Sarah Chadfield, Mary Horgan, Ivan Juritz [edit: WINNER!! – text of his brilliant ‘A Textual Source for Mallarmé’s Coup de Dés’ available with shortlisted entries here], Kate McEnery, Grace Yeong and a team submission from Simon Vickery, Tom Peters and Edward Szekely.

Final judges for the prize include Lisa Appignanesi, Michael Berkeley, AS Byatt, Alison Duthie, Juliet Gardiner, Jeremy Harding, Michael Holroyd, Stephen Romer and Fiona Shaw. My thanks to the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture for the opportunity, and I look forward to reading and hearing the other submissions.
