Lifewriting Annual seeks critical and scholarly essays on lifewriting in all forms—biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, graphic "novels" and new media. We look especially for articles describing and assessing scholarly resources for biographical writing, such as manuscript collections and letters. For the "Crossings" section, hybrid essays combining one or more lifewriting genres with another genre are welcome. We publish reviews of recently published biographies, autobiographies, and other works of lifewriting, but do not publish reviews of critical works on lifewriting. Submissions may treat works in any language or period but must be written in English.

All submissions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style 15th ed. (author/date format). Critical and creative essays should run 7,500 to 15,000 words; reviews should be about 2500 words. Email submissions as a Microsoft Word attachment to Email inquiries welcome.
