The Wallace Prize

The Wallace Prize is the most prestigious independently awarded undergraduate writing prize at Yale. Every spring, Mag hosts an open submission for the prize in memory of Peter J. Wallace ’64, a former member of the Yale Daily News editorial board. Undergraduates from all disciplines submit their unpublished fiction and nonfiction for a chance to be published in a special issue of Mag and win a cash prize. Submissions are judged by an anonymous panel of experts across literature, academia and journalism.
