I am super-thrilled to announce today the winner of the 2014 Biennial Michael Camille Essay Prize, the theme for which this time around was "Medievalism and the Margins." I'm especially happy that this essay investigates the marginal position and place of poetry in relation to prose in critical writing, since for a long while now, both the BABEL Working Group and postmedieval have been invested in exploring and enacting poetics as a lyrical criticism.

S.J.'s essay will appear in postmedieval in 2015 [Issue #2], and appropriately enough, in the special issue edited by David Hadbawnik and Sean Reynolds on "Contemporary Poetics and the Medieval Muse."
HUZZAH for S.J. Pearce, and with deep gratitude to the judges for their hard work examining all of the essays submitted.
