James Bucky Carter

Just a reminder to interested parties that the deadline to
submit to ?Graphic Novels as Complements to the Classics"
is June 15. I have recently been contacted by a leading
 publisher of English Education materials that would like
to see sample chapters and more by July 15, so getting
papers to me in a timely fashion is very important.

As well, please note that I will be moving: My new address
come June 1st will be 110 B Appletree
Road/Charlottesville, VA 22903. Please send essays there
if you feel they will be arriving after the 1st. As well,
e-mail submissions sent to will be
accepted. Sending via both methods encouraged.
