ANQ: American Notes and Queries is sponsoring a special issue on Contemporary Irish Writing for Fall, 2012. We would be interested in short articles or notes dealing any aspect of Carson McCullers' work, especially McCullers' influence on other writers, or their influence on her. Also, we seek contributions on McCullers and the Global South, McCullers and Film, McCullers and Music, and International Perspectives on McCullers.

Contributors should be mindful of the journal’s niche as one which publishes short articles and notes. We cannot consider any manuscripts of more than 3,500 words. While ANQ does not publish explications per se, we are open to textual analyses that challenge common readings or open new avenues of discussion. As a general practice, we especially welcome submissions that focus on archival materials, analyses of fluctuations of literary reputation, identifications of allusions and literary indebtedness, and readings supported by biographical information.

ANQ uses MLA format with parenthetical notes and a Works Cited. Submissions should be sent electronically to:
