UPDATE: EXTENDED Submission Date: Call for Publication: “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary”

Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 1:40pm

deadline for submissions:

Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.
