Edith Wharton Essay Prize 2012

Post date: 24 February 2012
Deadline: 30 April 2012

Instituted in the fall of 2005, the Edith Wharton Essay Prize is awarded annually for the best unpublished essay on Edith Wharton by a beginning scholar. Graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty members who have not held a tenure-track or full-time appointment for more than four years are eligible to submit their work. The winning essay will be published in _The Edith Wharton Review_, a peer-reviewed journal indexed in the MLA Bibliography, and the writer will receive an award of $250.

All entries will be considered for publication in _The Edith Wharton Review_ as well as for the Edith Wharton Essay Prize. Submissions should be 15-25 pages in length and should follow the 7th edition MLA style, using endnotes, not footnotes. Applicants should not identify themselves on the manuscript but should provide a separate cover page that includes their names, academic status, e-mail address, postal addresses, and the notation “The Edith Wharton Essay Prize.”

To submit an essay for the prize, send three copies to The Edith Wharton Review:

Prof. Carole M. Shaffer-Koros, Editor
