The Edith Wharton Society Essay Prize
Beginning in the fall of 2005, the Edith Wharton Society Essay Prize will be
awarded annually for the best unpublished essay on Edith Wharton by a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, and the writer will receive an award of $250.
