Dear Friends of Edith Wharton and The Mount,

I am very pleased to share the call for submissions for the 2015-2016 Edith Wharton Society Awards. Here are the details on the Prize for a Beginning Scholar, the Undergraduate Essay Prize, and The Mount Research Prize. Please share and encourage students and colleagues to submit their work for consideration.

As a fan of Edith Wharton’s you may want to consider a membership to the Edith Wharton Society. Membership has many benefits, not the least of which is receiving the peer-reviewed journal, The Edith Wharton Review, now edited by Meredith Goldsmith and Sharon Kim. The journal recently signed a contract with Penn State University Press and is indexed in the MLA International Bibliography. Please watch the Wharton Society website for information on Calls for Papers and the 2016 Edith Wharton Society Conference.

Being a member of the Edith Wharton Society is one meaningful way in which you can sustain the good work of the Society and help keep Edith Wharton’s legacy alive.  Thank you for your consideration.

All good wishes,

Emily Orlando
