COLLECTION OF ESSAYS ON STORM JAMESON

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Storm Jameson.
The deadline for 500-word abstracts is 15th May 2004.
It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Jameson worked (novels, plays,
short stories, and literary criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that address Jameson's fiction and literary
criticism after the 1930s and that consider the relationship of her work to that
of other women writers of her generation (Naomi Mitchison, Rose Macaulay, Sylvia
Townsend Warner, Rebecca West and others)
