Co-Editors Elsie M. Walker and David T. Johnson / LFQ

Literature/Film Quarterly is the longest-standing international journal in adaptation studies, a field of inquiry into the ways that films are adapted from literature, history and other films. The journal invites submissions on specific text and film adaptations, the wide-ranging intertextuality of literature and film, the intersection of different media as they relate to adaptation studies, adaptation theory, teaching adaptation, interviews with film and literary figures on the process of adaptation, reviews of both current film adaptations and books on adaptation and/or cinema, and responses to any articles and reviews published in Literature/Film Quarterly.

Articles should ordinarily be limited to 5,000 words; reviews to 1,500. The New MLA Style must be followed for documenting sources and listing them in Works Cited. If possible, supply stills or frame enlargements of the films discussed. Enclose two printed copies of the manuscript and an additional copy on CD (with manuscript saved as text file in one of these versions: Microsoft Word 98, 2000, 2003, or 2007). Send articles to The Editors, Literature/Film Quarterly, Salisbury University, 1101 Camden Ave., Salisbury, MD 21801, USA. Please include all contact information as well as the title of the essay on a separate cover sheet.
