Friday, October 1, 2010 - 11:47am
Pennsylvania Literary Journal

Due to a thinner-than-expected stack of submissions for our "19th Century British Literature" call for papers, we have decided to expand this issue into a general issue. Papers on British topics will receive preference, and will be placed in a seperate section. If you are working on interesting, well-written essays in any Language or Literature fields, please send us the submission, as soon as possible, hopefully before our October 30th deadline. We have begun the peer-review process, and plan to publish the issue in December 2010. Please send a query to the Editor, Anna Faktorovich (Instructor, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania), if you have questions about your idea.
