CFP: Versification (no deadline; journal)

Friday, March 9, 2007 - 3:45am
Peter Groves

The refereed e-journal Versification (,
ISSN 1546-0401) is looking for essays and reviews on matters to do with
metre and literary prosody. Versification aims to provide an
interdisciplinary forum where scholars, students, critics, writers and
artists from many different fields can explore the role that sound plays
in the poetry of English and other languages. Our aim is to study both
the works of art which poets make out of language and the language out
of which they make such works.
