Dear LRB contributors,
We've recently set up a competition to encourage young reviewers. It's the
first time we've done anything like this, and it's a bit of an experiment.
I've included the details below and also attached a poster. We would be
grateful if you could tell your students about it.
With many thanks,
Deborah Friedell
