All graduate students who presented papers at the 2011 Narrative conference in St Louis are invited to compete for the prize for the best graduate student paper of the 2011 conference. The winner will receive a copy of a Perkins Prize-winning book of his or her choice and will be invited to expand the winning paper and submit it for consideration by Narrative.

Submit your papers electronically as attachments (Word PC-compatible files) to both of the judges by Tuesday, May 17: Nancy Easterlin <> and Porter Abbott <>
