ANQ:American Notes and Queries is sponsoring a special issue on Carson McCullers and her Influence, to be published in early 2013. We are interested in short articles or notes dealing with any aspect of McCullers' work, especially her influence on other writers, or the influence of others on her. Also, we will consider contributions on McCullers and the Global South, McCullers and the New Southern Studies, McCullers and Sexuality, McCullers and Film, McCullers and Music, and International Perspectives on McCullers.

Contributors must be mindful of the journal's niche as one which publishes short articles and notes. We do not typically consider 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 the email address above.
