Textual Overtures is a graduate-level peer-reviewed open-access journal published online that offers a space in which rhetoric, composition, and literature can coexist and create a harmony of textual explorations.

Overview

As graduate students in English from Washington State University representing our English Graduate Organization (EGO), we aim to bring together the voices of our peers that allow differing perspectives to be placed in conversation, so as to broaden the scope of our own understandings of textual, interdisciplinary communication and how this can help those learning and teaching as graduate students. For the inaugural issue of Textual Overtures, we will be considering submissions from graduate students of all backgrounds with a focus on the theme: “Texts, Technologies, and Remediation.” We welcome papers that explore a variety of textualities within our respective academic disciplines that consider how we use technologies to facilitate our pedagogical, practical, and scholarly use of texts.

We are accepting full manuscripts that are ready to publish. Manuscripts typically run between 3,300 and 7,000 words (or approximately 12–25 double-spaced pages), though articles may be shorter or longer in line with your purposes. We are also accepting book reviews about recently published (2010 or newer) texts in the fields of literary criticism, composition theory, or relevant fields that total around 500-1500 words.

Please include our cover page (found at the link below) with your name, university affiliation, title of your paper and an abstract of 150 words or fewer followed by your unmarked submission.
More details and our official CFP can be found at our website: http://textualovertures.wordpress.com/submit/

The extended deadline is February 28.
