full name / name of organization:
Lifewriting Annual seeks critical and scholarly essays on lifewriting in
all its forms -- biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, and
works in other media. We are particularly interested in articles describing
and assessing scholarly resources for biographical writing, especially
collections of manuscripts and letters. We welcome hybrid essays combining
one or more lifewriting genres, e.g., memoir and biography, for a section
called "Crossings." We are also looking for reviews of recently published
biographies, autobiographies, and other works of lifewriting. Submissions
may treat works in any language or period, but must be written in English.
Deadline for 2006 issue: January 15, 2006.
All submissions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style 15th ed.
(author/date format). Articles should be from 7,500 to 15,000 words.
Reviews should be around 2500 words. Submissions should be in Microsoft
Word. Email submissions as an attachment to trs8_at_psu.edu or send hard copy
