The Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Journal of Florida Literature publishes articles, creative fiction and poetry, book reviews, notes in the spirit of or regarding the life and work of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, her circle, and other authors who use the state of Florida as a source of creativity.

Since 1988, The Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Journal of Florida Literature has published material relevant to the life, works, and friends of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Yearling and many other widely respected and beloved works, including Cross Creek, Cross Creek Cookery, South Moon Under, and Golden Apples.

The editor of the JFL, Anna Lillios, would like to invite submissions of critical articles that focus not only on Rawlings but also on issues that fit within the broader contexts of Florida writing, regionalism, feminism, race, eco-criticism, literature of place, domesticity, and southern culture. Papers in these more general areas should in some way connect with Rawlings and/or contemporaries of Rawlings.

In addition, we will welcome submissions of short fiction and poetry, especially those which reflect Rawlings's own deep affection for Florida and Florida life.

Please submit two hard copies of critical article manuscripts in MLA style by the January 1st deadline. Short fiction manuscripts, also submitted in two hard copies, should be no more than twenty double-spaced pages in length. Manuscripts should follow MLA guidelines for documentation. All submitted articles and creative work will be peer reviewed.

Please send submissions and correspondence related other editorial issues and subscriptions to:
