Prose Studies
History, Theory, Criticism

Call for Papers

Prose Studies is a journal for discussion of the history, theory and
criticism of non-fictional prose of all periods.

While the journal publishes studies of such recognized genres of non-
fiction as autobiography, biography, the sermon, the essay, the letter,
the journal etc., it also aims to promote the study of non-fictional prose
as an important component in the profession's ongoing re-configuration of
the categories and canons of literature. Interdisciplinary studies,
articles on non-canonical texts and essays on the theory and practice of
discourse are also included.

We would be interested in submissions on any aspect of non-fictional prose.
