New Terrain Award for Undergraduate Writing

A Call to (R)(e)volution!

Award-winning literary journal offers New Terrain Award and $500 prize for undergraduate essay

Whole Terrain, the nationally renowned literary journal of Antioch University New England, has established an annual award for outstanding undergraduate writers. We’re seeking environmental essays from current undergraduates for this year’s issue, (R)(e)volution. The writer of the winning essay will receive the New Terrain Award of $500 and have his or her work published in the upcoming issue.

Whole Terrain is challenging college students to write a reflective essay considering some of the following questions: What roles do revolution, evolution or both play in crises facing the planet? Do you envision ways to solve the ecological, economic and/or social challenges of the twenty-first century? How radical should solutions to environmental problems be? What can the evolution of species teach us about long-term societal change? Do lasting solutions come through evolution or only through revolution?

The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2009. Early submission is encouraged. Complete contest details and the online submission form are available here.

If you have questions or need assistance, please send us an email at with the subject header “New Terrain Award Submission.”
