Announcing the James Olney Award

The Southern Review is pleased to announce the inauguration of the James Olney Award. Olney was a professor of English and coeditor of The Southern Review from 1983 to 2004. He died in 2015. The annual award, established and funded by the generous support of a donor, is presented to a contributor for an exceptional work that appeared in the previous volume year and is accompanied by a $500 prize.

The recipient of the James Olney Award for volume 54 is James Arthur, for his poem “School for Boys” from our autumn 2018 issue.

You can read the poem online here, and see more of James’s work in the autumn 2018 issue.
