The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” EXTENDED Submission deadline: November 11, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. 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.
