Comment Magazine Launches Seerveld Prize for New Writers



July 26, 2018

Comment Magazine has launched the Seerveld Prize for New Writers. The prize offers an opportunity for new or experienced writers – who’ve never been published in Comment – to hone their craft, receive public recognition, and contribute to the public theology journal published by think tank Cardus. 

The first place prize winner will collect $1,500 CAD, and the runner-up win $1,000 CAD. Winning articles will be published on the Comment Magazine website and given consideration for publication in the Winter 2018 print issue.

Seerveld Prize essay entries can focus on one of three themes: public theology and public life, New Minimalism, and the Cardus Manifesto. Full explanations of the themes are available online.
