Aelurus Graduate Scholarly Journal
Call for Papers: 2014 Issue
Submission Deadline: 26 January 2014
Aelurus is a scholarly literature journal run and staffed by graduate students in Weber State University's Master's of Arts in English program. Because of our position, we at Aelurus understand what our fellow graduate students need from the publication process. Aelurus is devoted to creating an environment that bolsters our fellow graduate scholars and fosters their scholarly endeavors.
The 24th annual Mardi Gras Conference invites scholars to investigate discourses on secrecy, anonymity, rumor, masking/masquerading, and mysterious places in literature and writing--along with discovering the hidden treasure in the king cake.
Masquerading, secrets, and intrigue feature prominently as themes of the Carnival celebration from Venice to New Orleans. In Venice, elaborate Carnival masks enable revelers to celebrate in disguise, while in New Orleans, the tradition continues with many masked krewes. For these krewes, not only is the identity of their king unknown by the public, the theme of their parade remains a guarded secret until the day of the event, creating an air of mystery and suspense.
New Voices is an interdisciplinary graduate student conference hosted by Georgia State University's English department and sponsored by the department's Graduate English Association. The conference is designed to provide emerging and experienced graduate scholars in the humanities with a forum for sharing their latest research. While the conference has a different suggested theme each year, adherence to the suggested theme is not at all necessary to be considered for inclusion in the conference. New Voices invites papers on all topics and themes related not only to English studies, but all other humanities disciplines as well as the social sciences and political science.

The New Union (www.new-union.co.uk), an online literary magazine, requires articles for online publication.
We welcome articles on any and all subjects and genres, and from any period in history.
We also invite articles that look at current news, events, politics, etc and connect them with literary topics past and present.
Articles should be approximately 1,000-2,000 words in length.
The only stipulation is that every article must be interesting and unique. No dull, academically formal articles required! We want funny, irreverent, and witty articles (unless your specialist subject is death, in which case you are excused!).
