Dear all,

Below is a call for submissions to our magazine's contest for student writers. Contributions from undergraduate students of computational linguistics are most welcome.

Sincerely, Tristan Miller Babel Advisory Panel


This year, Babel: The Language Magazine <http://babelzine.com/> is once more celebrating young linguists' insights into language with our Babel Young Writers' Competition. We will be publishing two articles representing both 16–18-year-old linguists and linguistics undergraduates. The articles will be published in Babel № 17, due out in November 2016. If you are a keen Babel reader or language lover, get writing to be in with a chance to get yourself published – as well as a free subscription to Babel 2017!

Visit <http://babelzine.com/events> to read our previous winners and pick up some inspiration! Jonathan Lahdo was our 16–18-year-old winner with his article on sociolinguistic evolution in Lebanon, while Ollie Sayeed claimed our undergraduates prize for his investigation into what spoonerisms can tell us about how language is represented in the mind.

16–18 Competition: Are you aged between 16 and 18 and would like to share your love of language with the world? Send us an article on any topic to do with language and linguistics to win the chance to begin your publishing career!

Undergraduate Competition: Are you studying for a linguistics-related degree and fancy a break from your usual assignments? Write a special essay for Babel readers and get the pleasure of seeing your work in print!

Entries must be no longer than 2500 words, in English, and deal with an interesting and accessible topic to do with language. Please e-mail your entry to editors at babelzine.com with the title "16–18 Competition" or "Undergraduate Competition".

16–18 Competition entrants must provide details of their institution and a teacher.

Undergraduate Competition winners must submit their entries from their university e-mail address (e.g. student at uni.ac.uk) and must provide contact details of a teacher at their institution.

The deadline for entries is Friday 26 August 2016. We will acknowledge receipt of your entry soon after receiving it, and announce the winners in October 2016. Good luck!
