This 3-day special focus event aims to examine the evolving genres and emerging contexts of testimonial production.

It is a genre that continues to thrive and evolve in the twenty-first century and one that encompasses a diversity of expression or representation from oral to written as well as nonfictional to fictional.

Merwin Studies: Poetry | Poetics | Ecology

Merwin Studies seeks submissions for articles on W. S. Merwin's poetry, fables, essays, and/or life's work planting. We are interested in pieces that explore his most current ventures, such as The Moon Before Morning (2014), but we are also interested in pieces that delve into his earlier work. With nearly seven decades of writing, there is much poetic energy to engage, explore, unleash, and compost. This is a place to get that real work done.

We are also interested in reviews of recent works by Merwin as well as reviews of secondary sources that explore Merwin's craft.

We accept submissions year round (merwinstudies [at] gmail [dot] com).
