Tips From the Editor

Enter our Waterman Fund Essay Contest by mid-winter each year. Appalachia  cosponsors this with the Waterman Fund (Waterman fund.org). Emerging writers (have not published major work nationally) may submit 2,000 to 3,000-word essays on the role and place of wilderness in the modern world. First prize, $1500. Second prize $500. Both will be published online and  in Appalachia.  Essay winners will be selected and announced by midsummer. An emerging writer is considered someone who has a solid writing background or interest, but has not yet published a major work of prose on this topic or been featured in national publications. Submit to essays@watermanfund.org.
