CFP: Edith Wharton Review (deadline: on-going).
The Edith Wharton Review, a peer-reviewed, MLA-indexed journal is currently seeking submissions. The journal is committed to rigorous study not only of Edith Wharton, but on Wharton in the context of other authors, and on Wharton in relation to late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century culture more generally. It publishes traditional criticism, pedagogical scholarship, essays on archival materials, review essays, and book reviews. The Review aims to foster emerging scholars and new approaches to Wharton studies as well as established scholarly approaches.
On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the journal now boasts a new design and vastly expanded content. Recent special issues include “_The Custom of the Country at 100″ and “Teaching Edith Wharton’s Late Fiction.” Opportunities exist to publish on Wharton’s lesser-known works, as well as her more canonical writings.
If you are interested in submitting, please contact Meredith Goldsmith, Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org). Submissions should be 20-25 pages, and prepared according to the _MLA Style Manual_.
More issues of the Edith Wharton Review have been placed online. These issues and more are available from the “Back Issues” tab of the menu bar. https://edithwhartonsociety.wordpress.com/edith-wharton-review/ewr-back-issues-online/
