The Theodore C. Hoepfner Literary Awards
The Theodore C. Hoepfner Literary Awards were established to honor Theodore Christian Hoepfner, a colorful scholar in the Auburn University Department of English from 1941 until his death in 1966. Each year, the editors of Southern Humanities Review bestow the awards to an outstanding essay, story, and poem published in the previous volume. Writers hoping to have their work considered for the Hoepfner Awards need only to have their work accepted for publication in SHR. The awards are announced in the first issue of each volume.
