Strecker, Trey

The electronic peer-reviewed English Studies Forum seeks innovative
creative and critical writing. The editors of ESF want to feature engaging
critical essays, as well as truly creative and experimental
work—fiction, poetry, and nonfiction—that takes formal risks.

The editors are currently soliciting manuscripts for a forum on "Play."
This forum will explore the diverse meanings of play in our lives.
Manuscripts might examine (or enact) textual play, as well as
manifestations of games, sport, leisure, and/or laughter as part of
culture.
