The Carson McCullers Society invites submissions for an annual scholarly Prize for Outstanding Conference Paper, to be awarded to an essay on the life and work of Carson McCullers presented at a conference in the past year. Entries should provide evidence that the paper was presented at a regional, national, or international academic conference during the previous calendar year (January to December 2016) and that the winner is eligible for the award as an active member of the Society. See the Society’s website at https://carsonmccullerssociety.wordpress.com/ for membership information. Submissions are welcome from graduate students and all levels of scholars. Judging will be a blind process, and the award carries a $100 honorarium. Please send submissions to Carson McCullers Society President Alison Graham-Bertolini (email@example.com) by February 1, 2017. The winner will be announced in early March.
