About the Eudora Welty Review:

The EWR is an annual journal that features scholarly essays, book reviews, news and notes, textual analyses, checklists, and new archival materials. The EWR also publishes 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.
