About the Eudora Welty Review

In 2009, the Eudora Welty Newsletter metamorphosed into the Eudora Welty Review, an annual journal, published each spring. The Eudora Welty Review publishes scholarly essays, book reviews, and regular features for news and notes, textual analyses, checklists, and new archival materials.The editors of EWR are constantly seeking new information about such Welty news items as adaptations of her works, forthcoming conferences of interest to Welty scholars, and awards given to Welty in acknowledgement of her contributions to American literature.

The EWR is an invaluable resource for Welty scholars and lovers of Welty’s work. Eudora Welty Review 12: 2020 was published in October 2020. Included are nine essays from the February 2019 Eudora Welty Society conference in Charleston, edited by Sarah Gilbreath Ford and Adrienne Akins Warfield; tributes to Jim Lehrer, Danièle Pitavy-Souques, and Elizabeth Spencer; an interview with Hunter McKelva Cole; a review of  New Essays on Eudora Welty, Class, and Race (edited by Harriet Pollack, UP of Mississippi 2020); and regular features including Practical Matters and the Checklist of Scholarship.
In addition to being available as a print publication, EWR is available digitally via Project Muse, JSTOR, EBSCOHost, and ProQuest.

The Eudora Welty Society will convene at the 2021 Yoknapatawpha Conference in Oxford, Mississippi, where the topic is “Faulkner, Welty, Wright: A Mississippi Confluence.” Please consider the Call for Papers posted below.
