The Edith Wharton Essay Prize
Submission Deadline: April 30, 2008

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annually for the best unpublished essay on Edith Wharton by a beginning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, 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 new 6 th 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 by April 30, 2008, to
