Nineteenth Century British Literature - October 30 Deadline
The peer-reviewed Pennsylvania Literary Journal is now accepting essays, book reviews, short stories, poetry and interviews from academics across the world for our fourth issue of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal, "Nineteenth Century British Literature," which will be published in January 2011 with Amazon CreateSpace. The page size is 8.5 X 5.5 inches, 12-point font, Times New Roman, MLA-style end-notes and Works Cited listings. The third issue of PLJ, "New and Old Historical Perspectives on Literature," is now on sale through Amazon, CreateSpace and other distribution channels. You can find more information about the journal at http://sites.google.com/site/pennsylvaniajournal and https://www.createspace.com/3432128. It is recommended, but not required, that you purchase a copy of the journal if you are submitting work, to familiarize yourself with our formatting and content standards.
Special Issue Topic: "Nineteenth Century British Literature" is intended to be a general field of interest that should help the issue to be a unified entity, without making the focus too narrow. Any theoretical approach to any literary genre is welcome. The novel, political, historical and structural approaches are of particular interest, but all genres and approaches will be reviewed and considered. If you have an essay that is outside of this category, you are welcome to send it as well – we might have a "General Literary Criticism" section. In addition, the special topic only applies to critical essays. Thus, book reviews, interviews and other works can be drawn from researchers in any other fields.
Book Reviews: We also have a deal with a number of publishers, listed on our website, who are willing to send free books to reviewers who agree to write a 1,200-1,600 word reviews on the books. You should look through the listed publishers' websites to choose one of their books for review. Contact the Editor, Anna Faktorovich to make an inquiry with the publisher. In your query send a copy of your C.V., the name of the publisher, information about the book you are interested in, information about why you want to review that specific book, and contact information for you – the mailing address is essential as that's where the publisher will send the book. Your email will be forwarded to the publisher – so don't leave anything out.
