Tips From the Editor

Enter our Waterman Fund Essay Contest by February 2, 2018. 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 2018. 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.
