Featuring poetry, fiction, essays, reviews, and graphic art by some of the world's finest writers and artists, the Gettysburg Review has earned many awards, including a Best New Journal award and four Best Journal Design awards from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals, and a PEN/Nora Magid Award for Excellence in Editing. Contributors have included luminaries such as E. L. Doctorow, Rita Dove, Donald Hall, and Joyce Carol Oates, as well as emerging writers such as Tina Barr, Polly Buckingham, George David Clark, Andrew Grace, Becky Hagenston, Katherine Heiny, Allegra Hyde, Chirstopher Kempf, Monica McFawn and Robert Oldshue. More than one hundred short stories, poems, and essays that first appeared in its pages have been reprinted in The Best American Short Stories, The Best American Essays, The Best American Poetry, The Pushcart Prize: The Best of the Small Presses, and other prize anthologies.
