Manuscripts in the fields of literary studies and creative writing, at

will also be given careful consideration.

* Innovative techniques for teaching short fiction writing

* Reviews of resources (print, electronic, film, or other) for teaching
particular stories or collections of stories

fiction (e.g. courses in American Literary History or Contemporary
Fiction that privilege the short story)

classroom (or literature into the creative writing classroom)

There is no restriction on the source language of the works and the
approaches that could be discussed, but submitted manuscripts should
