Politics in Residence | Gladstone's Library

Politics in Residence 2021

Open for Submissions Feb 3 - Mar 13 2020!

Politics in Residence at Gladstone’s Library recognises the best written expressions of political thought, particularly that which encourages political debate with a public audience. Developed from the Library’s successful Writer in Residence programme, Politics in Residence recognises some of the best non-fictional writing in English.

The prize rewards thoughtful, well-researched considerations of contemporary political topics. We take ‘political’ to mean any cultural, spiritual, economic, political, social or ethical issue. The prize does not distinguish between political leanings or affiliations; all submissions, however, must be aimed firmly at engaging the general public. Creative non-fiction, journalism, lifewriting and biography are all eligible.
