The 2015 Waterman Fund Essay Contest

Contest name: The 2015 Waterman Fund Essay Contest
The deadline for submissions is April 15th, 2015
Awarded $1500 and published in Appalachia Journal.
The Honorable Mention essay will receive $500.

Detail

2015 Essay Writing Contest – Thank you so much for your interest in the Essay Contest. The 2015 Essay Contest is underway (see theme and instructions below). For more information, please contact Bethany Taylor at essays@watermanfund.org.

Guy and Laura Waterman spent a lifetime reflecting and writing on the Northeast’s mountains. The Waterman Fund seeks to further their legacy of stewardship through essays that celebrate and explore issues of wilderness, wildness, and humans through the Fund’s annual essay contest.

In conjunction with the Museum of the White Mountains’ exhibit on Woman and the Mountains, the 2015 essay contest invites emerging writers to explore the question of who the stewards of wilderness are. Statistically, more men than women explore professional careers in the stewardship of wilderness and public land management. What, if any, bearing does the gender of stewards have on our shared and individual perceptions of, and relationship to, wilderness?

Essay Writing Contest

Do you find a difference in how men and women experience and steward wilderness, personally or professionally? Alternately, does the spirit of wilderness transcend anything so human as gender? Is there a relationship between gender, wilderness exploration, and the management of these invaluable public lands?

Emerging writers are encouraged to explore the interplay between men, women, and wilderness, with particular regard to how this shapes our individual and cultural perceptions and stewardship of wild places.

The deadline for submissions is April 15th, 2015. We will announce the winners at the end of June. The winning essayist will be awarded $1500 and published in Appalachia Journal. The Honorable Mention essay will receive $500. Both essays will be published on our website as well. Submissions should include contact information and a few lines about why the writers feel their essay is appropriate for the contest. A word count of 2,000-3,000 is encouraged and appreciated. Online submissions are appreciated, but not required. If submitting online, double-spaced manuscripts in a 12-point font, Word doc compatible file, are preferred. If submitting by mail, please include a SAS postcard or an email address. The receipt of all submissions will be acknowledged.

The Waterman Fund’s objective is to strengthen the human stewardship of the open summits, exposed ridgelines and alpine areas of the Northeast. We welcome personal, scientific, adventure, or memoir essays; fiction, poetry or songs are not eligible for this contest. More information about the writing essay competititon visit here .

quality. Simultaneous submissions ARE welcome. Individual shorts should
be approximately 1500 words or less. Submissions should be in .rtf,
.doc, or .pdf format. Feel free to submit multiple stories, but

with authors of short-short fiction, articles concerning short-short
fiction, as well as reviews of short story collections (preferably
collections of flash or micro shorts). Authors retain all rights and
copyright to their works. Fiction Southeast requests one-time, exclusive
rights to publish your work. The magazine is made ou of volunteers, and
though we do hope to pay writers in the future, we do not pay at thsi
point. Like many journals, we maintain a mailing list to ensure that
readers and contributors are notified when new issues are published.

Submissions for Why I Write Series

Inspired by George Orwell’s famous essay, we are
introducing a new series @ Fiction Southeast entitled “Why I Write.” We
are now accepting submissions for the series. Guidelines are fairly
flexible. We simply want to know why you write. Who and what inspired
you to become a writer? What keeps you motivated when the rejection
letters begin to pile up? What are your objectives when you write? What
are you trying to accomplish?

We’ve included a link to Orwell’s
essay below in case you need a little inspiration. We are particularly
interested in submissions from writers we’ve previously published, but
we’re open to submissions from anyone who considers himself/herself a
writer, so please encourage your students and colleagues to submit a
piece.
