Call for Submissions

The Journal of Kentucky Studies is a professional journal whose focus
tends to center on the history, authors, literature, and general
culture of Kentucky and the Appalachian region. However, JKS welcomes
articles on any theme as well as art, commentary, critical essays,
history, literary criticism, short fiction, and poetry. Black and white
photography is also accepted. (Note: We are currently looking for essays
on Hunter S. Thompson who was born in Louisville, KY.)

All manuscripts should follow the University of Chicago Manual of Style
(History) or MLA Style (Literature), be double-spaced, and be submitted
in triplicate with S.A.S.E. Although we have no restrictions on length
of prose fiction or non-fiction, most manuscripts which find their way
into our pages are typically about 20 typed, double-spaced pages: 6000
words or less. The quality of the submission is the final arbiter. We
also have no restriction on the style or subjects for our published
poetry. Submissions, however, should be limited to 3-5 lyric poems or
1-2 longer forms. Turn around time on submissions is typically six
months.

        The Journal is published yearly by the Northern Kentucky University
Department of Literature and Language. Statements of fact and opinion
are made on the responsibility of the authors alone. All articles and
other correspondence should be sent to:
