New Terrain Award

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 writing — poetry, fiction or non-fiction — from current undergraduates for this year’s volume on the theme of Breaking Bread. The deadline for New Terrain submission is March 1, 2016.

The writer of the winning piece will receive the New Terrain Award of $250 and have his or her work published in the upcoming issue. Entries should be sent using our online form. If you have questions or need assistance, please send us an email with the subject header “New Terrain Award Submission.”

To qualify for the award, you must be an undergraduate student in good academic standing, and your submission must be original, unpublished work. This information will be verified for potential candidates.

Manuscripts are not read anonymously. During the screening process, every manuscript is read by the Whole Terrain editorial board in preparation for the finalist meeting where winners are chosen by consensus. In instances where an editorial board member is personally acquainted with an entrant the member is required to disclose the relationship before discussion.
