SAR Essay Prize

South Atlantic Review publishes four issues annually: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. The SAR Essay Prize Committee reviews the issues from the year prior to the annual convention and selects one essay to recognize for exceptional scholarship and its contribution to the journal.

The author(s) of the selected essay receives a $500 honorarium and complimentary registration to attend the annual SAMLA Conference. 

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

Please contact Dan Abitz at [email protected] or 404.413.5816 with any questions.
