Emily Dickinson Undergraduate Essay Prize
The Emily Dickinson International Society is seeking essays for a prize devoted to undergraduate research on Emily Dickinson. We seek critical essays by undergraduates from institutions of all kinds, focusing on Dickinson’s poems or letters. Students at all levels are eligible to submit. Papers should be 15 pages maximum. The winning essay will be published on the EDIS website and the author will receive an award of $100.
To submit an essay for the prize, send copies of articles as anonymous word attachments, plus a cover letter with contact information to the following address by May 25, 2016: firstname.lastname@example.org. The essays will be distributed electronically to a panel of nationally recognized scholars for judging. All submissions will be acknowledged and receive a response within a month.
As you undoubtedly are aware, we have a day for giving thanks, and then a couple of days for getting deals, and now we have Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back. Today, people and institutions around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. During this festive, busy holiday season, we ask that you consider giving to the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS). Your gift of any amount will help us continue support the study and appreciation of Emily Dickinson’s poetry and poetry in general. We are especially interested in raising funds for student travel to our conferences and meetings (our 2016 International Conference and Critical Institute will be held in Paris). With your support, we can better serve all of our members and programs. To contribute, please visit https://edis.press.jhu.edu/membership/contribute
Here’s wishing each and all the happiest of holiday seasons, and we thank you for your continued support!
