The Weather issue essay contest

$20 reading fee, $25 with magazine subscription

Deadline: April 13, 2015

We’re not just making idle chit-chat; the weather affects us all, and talking about the weather is a fundamental human experience. Now, as we confront our changing climate, it may be more important than ever. Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and compelling narrative with an informative or reflective element and reach beyond a strictly personal experience for some universal or deeper meaning.

First place prize: $1,000

Runner-up prize: $500
