All graduate students who presented papers at the ISSN conference in Birmingham are invited to submit your work in competition for the graduate student prize.  The winner will receive a copy of a Perkins Prize-winning book of his or her choice, will be invited to expand the winning paper for consideration by Narrative, and will receive $500 toward expenses for the 2010 ISSN conference in Cleveland.

Please submit your papers electronically as Word attachment to both of the judges, Susan Lanser lanser@brandeis.edu and Sheila Teahan teahan@msu.edu by July 15, 2009.  The submitted papers should be ones actually presented at the conference, not expanded or edited versions of them.  For the ease of the judges, kindly double-space your manuscripts and number the pages.
