SAR Essay Prize

Each year, the South Atlantic Review Essay Prize Committee reviews the four issues of the journal from the year prior to the annual conference and selects one essay to recognize for exceptional scholarship and its contribution to the journal.

The author(s) of the selected essay receive(s) an honorarium of $500 and complimentary registration to attend the next annual conference. 


Nominations are not required – all essays published in SAR during the prize year are considered for the award.
