Below is a call for submissions to our magazine's annual 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/> will be running the fifth edition of our Young Writers' Competition, which encourages young linguists starting out on their study of language. We will be publishing two articles, one by a 16–18-year-old writer and one by an undergraduate student. Both articles will appear in Babel № 25, published November 2018. 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!
Visit <http://babelzine.com/events.html> to get inspiration from previous winners on topics ranging from sign language to spoonerisms, and from Romansch to Konglish.
The winners will be announced in October 2018. Good luck!
