Last year we were thrilled to have master storyteller William Boyd judge our inaugural Connell Guides Essay Prize. He said the standard of entries was “uniformly high – thoughtful, intelligent, cogently argued. They should all be congratulated. Wit and intelligence were present in abundance in the piece I’ve chosen as the winner but also marked out the runners-up. Bravo to all.”
We recently caught up with William Boyd and he had some very nice things to say about our Essay Prize!
