Paper Prizes

The Society will award prizes of $100 for the best published paper and $50 for the best conference paper on any aspect of Susan Glaspell’s life and works. Prizes will be available annually and are open to non-members as well as ISGS members. Awards will be determined by the Officers and Executive Council of the ISGS and will be announced at the ISGS Business Meeting and posted on the ISGS website. Articles and papers must be emailed as pdf (articles) or Word (papers) attachments to at any time but at least four weeks prior to the posted date of the Business Meeting. Please ensure that the author’s identification is masked on the submitted work itself, as the work will be assessed through a blind peer review process.
