Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis--Call for Video and Short Essays

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2016 - 11:23am
Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis / Ohio University

At Parlour, we accept Growl Posts, video lectures, and video presentations on a rolling basis. These types of content need not relate to the theme of an upcoming issue.

A Growl Post is a short essay responding to a text using few, if any, secondary sources. Named for John Jarndyce's "Growlery" in Dickens' Bleak House, the Growlery is a space to express and ruminate on issues "unsuitable" for the parlour. However, Growls do not need to exclusively express "ill humour." Funny, edgy, witty, dark—Growls may contemplate or approach a text from any perspective. Growl Posts should follow current MLA guidelines and be approximately 1500-2500 words in length.
