Books Available for Review - Book Submissions Welcome - Open Deadline

Monday, April 2, 2012 - 12:00pm
Anaphora Literary Press

Book Reviews: The Pennsylvania Literary Journal is looking for academics with tenure-track appointments to write book reviews of recent titles that have been released in their field of interest. Several academic publishers, including Harvard UP, Pearson, Random House, Penguin, Cambridge UP, Duke UP, and SUNY, have agreed to send free books to writers in exchange for the reviews. Unlike with other journals - it is up to you to find the book you want to read and that is helpful for your current research and to send a specific request to PLJ that will be forwarded to the publisher (if the author is qualified to write about the topic).
