The Lewis Essay Prize has been established to provide up to 10 awards of $3,000 each for essays published in popular venues that present the state of the art or make new progress on the topics funded through the Problem of Evil in Modern and Contemporary Thought project during the 2010-2013 academic years.
Essays must be at least 1,000 words in length and must be published in a popular, non-academic publication with a circulation of at least 12,000. Publications can be religious in orientation (e.g., Christianity Today, First Things, Christian Century) or secular (e.g., Harper’s, Times Literary Supplement, The National Review, The Atlantic). Selected online publications will also be considered (e.g. Slate.com). Essayists are encouraged to consult with the Center’s director to determine the suitability of a proposed venue for prize eligibility.
Entries must accepted for publication between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2013. To be considered, a copy of the published essay must be submitted for review on a rolling basis by June 30, 2013. Awards may be made annually between September 1 2011 through September 1, 2013. Winners will be selected by a panel appointed by the board for the Center for Philosophy of Religion.
