Published annually, the Southern Quill is the English Department’s student-edited literary magazine. The Southern Quill has a class that produces the journal as a final project. In circulation since 1950, the journal features poetry, short stories, and artwork produced by Dixie State University student and welcomes material from writers and artists who live in Washington County. The editorial staff of the Southern Quill administers the Annie Atkin Tanner Memorial Poetry Award, as well, a prize given to student poets for outstanding work.
Established in 1972 by Dr. Vasco M. Tanner to honor his wife Annie, the Tanner Fund awards three scholarships each year to poets who attend Dixie State University. All poems submitted to the Southern Quill by DSU students receive consideration for the awards. To determine scholarship winners, the editorial staff carefully reviews and evaluates every poem that is submitted to the Quill. The Tanner family determines the first, second, and third place winners.
