The electronic English Studies Forum publishes innovative critical and creative writing. ESF currently seeks submissions for sites on the following topics:

* "Image, Story, and Conversation" explores the idea that we imagine our world in archtypal patterns, three of which are image, story, and conversation.
* "The Postmodern Imagination and Beyond" asks "what are we imagining, and how?" This site investigates the postmodern imagination and the postmodern understanding of the nature/role of imagination in contemporary literature and culture. This site will also consider what post-postmodernism might look like.
* "PostColonial Literatures" examines postcolonial literatures and the postcolonial imagination.
