Submissions will be reviewed by members of the ABP advisory board, a collection of leading Bierce scholars and Americanists.
 
Literary briefs will offer a critical perspective on a *single* Bierce story or work of nonfiction prose. Briefs should not exceed 2,000 words, but should include scholarly notes. Deadline: 5/1/06.
