The WMS is seeking submissions for the following guaranteed session for MLA 2020:

Although her greatest claim to fame still rests upon her solo novel Wuthering Heights – a grand saga of passion enacted against the timeless Moors – her poetry also reveals a powerful inner world of imaginative and spiritual bonding with the Supreme Being. Emily and her siblings were an exclusive band who were mostly unschooled, made very few friends in the village, their playgrounds being the open moors at the back of their home and their own vivid imaginations.
